The Citizens Budget Advisory Committee (CBAC) was created by the City Manager to advise City staff on the development, implementation, and evaluation of the annual City budget. Participation in CBAC is an opportunity not only to advise on the prioritization of how City tax dollars are spent, but also to advise our policymakers in their decision-making process.

Members review and discuss the quarterly financial reports and the current year’s revenue and expenditure projections. Many discussions involve philosophical and strategic issues which impact the budget. It is the role of CBAC members to take information learned in the meetings back into the community and to bring questions/concerns back for discussion.


CBAC meets the third Wednesday of each month, March through October and the second Wednesday in November at 7:30 a.m.
