The Budget Committee consists of members of the City Council, including the mayor
and an equal number of appointed members, who must be qualified voters of
the city and are not employees, officers or agents of the city. The members
have staggered, three-year terms.
The committee is responsible for deliberating on the Proposed Budget
submitted by the city manager and for sending the Approved Budget to the City Council
for adoption. The committee also approves tax levies.
There are approximately six meetings throughout the year, with the majority of
those being in late April/May. The committee schedules meetings for 2–4 consecutive Monday
evenings to review and hear discussion on the proposed budget for the next
fiscal year. All meetings are advertised and open to the public.
