The Budget Committee is an advisory group created by Oregon law to take public comment and testimony on the proposed budget and to recommend approval with any changes of the proposed budget to the City Council. The Budget Committee is active in April and May. The Committee reviews each department's proposed budget and citywide budget policies. The Budget Committee is comprised of the seven City Council members and seven citizen members. All citizen nominees must be formally appointed by the full City Council, and Budget Committee members must be residents of the city of Albany. One person is nominated by each Councilor; and one representative at-large is appointed by the Mayor.
