Open Positions on the City of Sweet Home Budget Committee

The Budget Committee is the planning board of the City.  It consists of the governing body (City Council) plus an equal number of local voters (citizen members of the Budget Committee) appointed by the Council.  The City of Sweet Home has 14 Budget Committee positions, with the votes of all members equal.  State Law (ORS 294.336) mandates a budget committee for all Oregon local governments.

The Budget Committee reviews the proposed budget submitted by the City Budget Officer.  In Sweet Home, this is the City Manager.  The Committee may approve the proposed budget intact, or change part or all of it prior to final approval.
