About the Budget Committee
The Budget Committee reviews the budget document and may either approve it as submitted by the City Manager or as the Committee may revise it. At budget hearings, the Committee hears the budget presentation by the City Manager and appropriate department staff, hears persons wishing to speak on the budget, and announces the time of the next meeting. All meetings of the Budget Committee are open to the public.
The Budget Committee receives information needed for the revision of the budget document prior to forwarding its recommendation to the City Council, which may amend the budget as provided by the Budget Committee and as set forth in Oregon Revised Statutes 294.414-294.456.
