The Budgeting Process
ORS 294 requires public taxing entities to prepare a budget consistent with Oregon Local Budget Law.
As a special district in the state of Oregon, Marion SWCD must hold at least one public meeting to review and approve the upcoming year’s budget. The Budget Committee consists of Marion SWCD’s Directors as well as local registered voters appointed by the Board. Non-board director committee members are elected to three-year terms.
Marion SWCD’s fiscal year runs from July 1 to June 30, so the Budget Committee meets prior to the new fiscal year, usually in April or May. At the Budget Committee meeting, members review the proposed budget submitted by the Budget Officer and either approve it as proposed or modify it.
