Budget Committee

The Budget Committee meets in the spring to review the following year's fiscal budget and can meet at other times during the year, as requested by the City Council.  Meetings are held at 6:30 p.m. in the Council Chambers at City Hall, 680 Greenwood Street, Junction City.  Citizen members are appointed by the Council. 
 
What is a Budget Committee?
The Budget Committee is an advisory group established by state statute.  The committee is made up of the governing body of the local government (City Council) and an equal number of appointed citizens. 

The appointed members must be electors of the local government.  That means they must be qualified voters of the local government who have the right to vote on the adoption of any measure.  They cannot be employees, officers, or agents of the local government.  They are appointed for staggered, three year terms.

Budget Committee Purpose
The Budget Committee has several purposes.  It conducts public meetings to hear the budget message and reviews the budget proposed by the budget officer.  One of its most important purposes is to listen to comments and questions from interested citizens.  It considers this public input as it deliberates on the budget.  It can revise the proposed budget to reflect changes it wants to make in the local government's fiscal policy.  When it is satisfied, the Committee approves the budget and then it goes before the City Council for adoption.
