ORS 294.414 Budget Committee (Summary)
The Budget Committee is composed of the governing body (City Council) and an equal number of electors (7) appointed by the governing body. An elector is a qualified voter who has the right to vote for the adoption of any measure. If the governing body cannot find a sufficient number of electors willing to serve, those who are willing and the governing body become the budget committee. If no willing electors can be found, the governing body is the budget committee (ORS 294.336(2)). The appointive members of the budget committee cannot be officers, agents, or employees of the local government (ORS 294.336(4)). Appointive members of the budget committee are appointed for three year terms. The committee meets as often as necessary to complete the budgetary business.
