The Budget Committee:
Our Budget Committee members for the new 2012-2013
Budget now being prepared are: Sharron Halvorson (Chair), Lisa Buttrey
and Karen Dwyer. Sharron has chaired and served on the Committee
for the past 11 years; Lisa has served on the committee for the
past 11 years; and Karen has served for the past 8 years.
We are very thankful to have them back once again to work on this
year's budget, and are grateful for the knowledge and experience that
they each bring to the task of preparing and finalizing the budget,
and for the time they give to do it.
The committee continues to be assisted by Teri Thomas, who serves
on the Board and is now also our Board Treasurer. Teri's background
in accounting is a wonderful resource for the Board, and we are
fortunate to have her expertise help with the budget preparation.
The Budget Process:
Every year, the operating budget is reviewed line by line by the
Budget Committee for the Board of Directors and the Chief, usually
starting at the March Board meeting. Any needed changes are discussed.
During subsequent meetings, any further recommendations and changes
are discussed, and upon approval are incorporated into the proposed
budget for the next fiscal year. Once all changes are finalized, the
Budget committee presents a final review of the proposed budget. If
there are no additional changes at that time, the budget is tentatively
The Proposed Budget is then "sunshined" for public comment
for a 30-day period. During this period, any concerns or questions
raised by our constituent community members can be directed to our
Board members, or brought up at the May Board meeting (or last Budget
board meeting, as posted per the published agenda) by those community
members who wish to attend. Any questions or concerns from community
members will be given due consideration before the Final Budget
is adopted. Once adopted, the Final Budget is submitted to the Secretary
of State in Oregon by June 30th.
