Duluth seeks Citizen’s Budget Review Advisory Committee members

Duluth is about to begin its sixth collaboration with the Citizen’s Budget Review Advisory Committee for FY2018. The city is looking for community members to join the team.

Previous Citizen’s Budget Review Advisory Committees reflected a cross section of the citizenry and provided helpful feedback and recommendations on ways the city can be more efficient and effective in its daily operations. The city believes it is important citizens have confidence in the city’s financial health and practices and be provided full access to all financial data.

The first meeting on March 8 establishes an overview of the city’s budget process and what the budget committee’s role will be in the process. The second meeting on March 15 involves review of draft figures for the preliminary FY2018 budget, debt service commitments, city initiatives, as well as information relating to capital reserve funds.

The third meeting on March 22 provides time for questions and clarification of any previous items. The fourth meeting on March 29 is geared toward recommendations from the citizen’s committee.
