CITY OF NEWPORT ANNOUNCES VACANCIES ON THE BUDGET COMMITTEE
The Newport City Council has extended the deadline to apply for one of the three vacancies on its Budget Committee. The new deadline is January 12th. The Budget Committee is comprised of seven citizens at-large and the sitting City Council – a total of 14 members. The Budget Committee meets usually four times a year and reviews the proposed budget presented by the city’s budget officer. The budget officer ultimately approves a recommendation submitted to the City Council for review and adoption.
Anyone interested in applying to fill these vacancies on the Budget Committee should apply using the city’s committee application which is 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. Hardcopies 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 revised application deadline is January 12, 2022. City Council plans to interview any additional applicants at its work session of January 18, 2022, and make an appointment at an upcoming City Council meeting.
