The Budget Committee meets for several times in May in the City Council Chambers and is composed of the City Council plus an equal number of citizens appointed by the City Council.

All members of the Budget Committee have equal authority.

The Budget Committee meets publicly to review the budget document as proposed by the budget officer.

The Budget Committee receives the budget and budget message and provides an opportunity for the public to ask questions about and comment on the budget. The Committee also approves a budget and, if ad valorem property taxes are required, approves an amount or rate of tax for all funds that receive property taxes.
