The City of Newport has two vacancies on its Budget Committee, and is seeking applications from individuals interested in serving.
The Budget Committee is comprised of seven citizens at-large and the sitting City Council – a total of 14 members. The Budget Committee meets approximately three times annually and reviews the proposed budget presented by the city’s budget officer, and ultimately approves a recommendation of a budget for City Council review and adoption.
Budget Committee members may also serve on the city’s Finance Work Group if they wish. This newly created group will meet approximately three times annually.
Anyone interested in serving on the Budget Committee should apply using the city’s committee application found on the city website at www.newportoregon.gov; click on “City;” then on “Committees;” and then on “Application for Committee/Commission.” The completed form can be submitted electronically. Copies of the committee application form can be obtained by contacting the City Manager’s Office at 169 SW Coast Highway, Newport, Oregon 97365, or by calling 541.574.0613.
The City Council will interview applicants and make appointments at an upcoming City Council meeting.
