Budget Review Committee

The Budget Review Committee was established by the City in recognition of the importance of resident involvement and input in the development of the annual Operating Budget and Capital Improvement Program. 

The committee meets each spring to review and provide guidance on the proposed budget, as well as to improve the transparency and readability of the budget document before it goes to City Council for approval. 

The committee consists of five members appointed by the Mayor with the concurrence of the City Council. Each Council member shall offer one nomination for appointment to the committee for Council consideration. Committee members shall serve staggered two-year terms and may be appointed for additional two-year terms at the discretion of the City Council.
