Yuba Community College District is coming after the taxpayer again! Get ready Butte, Colusa, Glenn, Lake, Placer, Sutter, Yolo and Yuba counties- Measure C will be appearing on the March 3, 2020 ballot and it is a WHOPPER. This is a $228 million bond. What nerve the Board of Trustees and Chancellor Douglas Houston have in unanimously giving the green light to C, when we are already paying on 4 bonds. Check your property taxes. You will find them under Yuba Community College District Debt SVC A, B, C, and D. Curious as to how long we will be paying on these school bonds? Better sit down folks, here are the facts: Bond A ends 8/1/2031. Bond B ends 8/1/2046. Bond C ends 8/1/2050. Bond D ends 8/1/2039. Is your hair on fire yet? Keep reading.

 

YCCD claims that Measure C will build in ironclad taxpayer protections to ensure our tax dollars are spent prudently and wisely. What a joke. YCCD does not give a rip about the taxpayer. They are, however, very interested in our tax dollars. Yuba College promises improvements and upgrades throughout the district; meanwhile the unfunded pension liability is a growing, out of control behemoth. The posh office space located at 425 Plumas Street costs the taxpayers $310,000.00 a year in rental fees alone. The outrageous salary of Chancellor Douglas Houston is north of $303,000.00 according to Transparent California for the calendar year 2018. Wake up people. The waste, fraud and abuse of Yuba Community College is real. Say “No” to Measure C. It is a horrible deal for the taxpayers.
