The City of Newport has a vacancy on its budget committee and is seeking applications from individuals interested in serving.
The budget committee is comprised of seven citizens at-large and the sitting city council — a total of 14 members. The budget committee meets approximately three times annually and reviews the proposed budget presented by the city’s budget officer, and ultimately approves a recommendation of a budget for the city council review and adoption.
Anyone interested in serving on the budget committee should apply using the city’s committee application which is found on the city website at www.newportoregon.gov; click on “City;” then on “Committees;” and then on “Application for Committee/Commission.” The completed form can be submitted electronically.
Copies of the committee application form can be obtained by contacting the city manager’s office at Newport City Hall, 169 SW Coast Highway, or by calling 541-574-0613.
The application deadline is Dec. 31. The city council plans to interview applicants at its work session on Jan. 6, 2020, and make an appointment at an upcoming city council meeting.
