ICBOC Releases 2008 Annual Report 

Body

 

*  *  *

The Independent Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee (ICBOC) has issued its 2008 Annual Report on construction progress. The ICBOC is a volunteer citizens group that is overseeing how the taxpayer-supported Grossmont Healthcare District (GHD) is spending millions of dollars in voter-approved public financing for construction projects at Sharp Grossmont Hospital in La Mesa. The 2008 Annual Report is available on the Internet at http://icboc.gafcon.net or www.grossmonthealthcare.org. The Report gives an update on several construction projects, including the Emergency Dept./Critical Care Unit (EDCCU), which involves the addition of 90 new beds to the hospital. Construction is on track for completion of the EDCCU in June, with patient utilization anticipated for this Summer 2009. The Report also provides a short profile of each ICBOC member. The committee includes East County residents who are experienced in project management, large-scale construction operations and finance, along with representatives from Sharp Grossmont Hospital, as well as designees from the San Diego County Labor Council and San Diego County Taxpayers Association. The group has been meeting since 2006, when voters approved Proposition G, a $247 million bond measure that is projected to fund capital infrastructure improvements through the year 2013. Voters passed Prop. G by more than 77 percent, well above the two-thirds required. Gafcon, Inc., a San Diego-based construction management firm, is managing the ICBOC website, as well as providing administrative support to the committee.
