To put these numbers in context, the 1993 Measure S bond was for $77 million total. The draft report was compiled by Citizens' Oversight Committee member Joe Sailer. The COC monitors that bond expenditures are in accordance with the bond measure. Sailer drafts periodic expenditure reports to inform the community. According to the draft, the top three expenditures went towards: architects ($8,773,031); attorneys ($7,186,199); and construction ($6,439,398). Vendors that were paid less than $100,000 totaled $1,202,183. The law firms Quinn Emanuel and Miller Brown Dannis Attorneys worked on the Strategic Concepts litigation regarding former BHUSD Facilities Director Karen Christiansen. To date, the Board has reimbursed the Measure E funds $2.5 million for legal and other fees, according to the draft. Bernards and Primesource Consulting includes payments to BHUSD Consultant Tim Buresh. Total funds received for the Measure E Bond fund, which includes 2009 and 2013 proceeds, interest and other income, amounts to $122,833,499. The fund balance as of Dec. 31, 2013, which includes unaudited amounts, is $90,320,172, according to the draft. The Board of Education has plans to accelerate the bond in November. Total budgeted Measure E funds for the Horace Mann project is $62 million. In May 2013, the Horace Mann Auditorium was the first significant Measure E construction project that was completed, with approximately $4.4 million spent on renovations. The Horace Mann modernization project is scheduled to break ground this summer. briefs cont. from page 6 Co-Managing Partner.
