About this committee

The Budget Review Committee is a fourteen-member advisory group created by Oregon law to take public comment and testimony on the proposed budget and to recommend approval with any changes of the proposed budget to the City Council. The city uses a biennial budget, and the committee’s level of activity and discussion of topics depend on the budget cycle and Oregon budget law. The Committee reviews each department's proposed budget and citywide budget policies. All citizen nominees must be formally appointed by the full City Council.
