Oversight – Board appoints bond $ watchdogs

The Silver Falls School District Board has unanimously appointed 17 individuals to serve on a Bond Oversight Committee ahead of a Nov. 7 vote on a $138 million facilities bond.

Officials said their goal is to let residents know who would be overseeing implementation of bond projects before casting their ballots.

During the board’s Oct. 9 regular meeting, Superintendent Scott Drue said 29 applications were received and all were “extremely competitive.” 

The 17 individuals the board approved that night included at least one community member from all 11 SFSD school boundaries and five people with construction or engineering backgrounds. There were also current and former city and district officials, and residents who had served on prior SFSD committees.

Committee members include: James Berokoff, Marshall Beville, Robin Fournier, Ciara Jung, Christiane Kraemer, Wally Lierman, Stephanie Mantie, April Newton, Kyle Palmer, Bryan Rose, Ammon Saboe, Andrew Schurter, Joseph Snethen, Casey Stadeli, Erv Stadeli, Eliza Torlyn, and Davis Willis.
