Fiscal Planning Board
The Budget Committee is the fiscal planning board of the city. It consists of the governing body (City Council) and an equal number of legal voters (citizen members of the Budget Committee) appointed by the Council. The votes of all the members are equal. State law (ORS 294.414) mandates a budget committee for all Oregon local governments except as provided in ORS 294.423.
The Budget Committee reviews the proposed budget rendered by the city budget officer. In Eagle Point, this is the city administrator. The committee may approve the proposed budget intact, or change part or all of it prior to final approval. After notices and publications are filed according to law, the budget is forwarded to the Council for formal adoption prior to June 30.
The fiscal powers of the Budget Committee are to:
- Approve the budget for adoption by the City Council
- Approve the total property taxes levied as an amount and/or rate
- Establish maximum total expenditures for each fund
- Specify the amount of property tax revenue and/or tax rates
