The Tualatin Hills Park & Recreation District is encouraging community members to apply for openings on the district’s Budget Committee. There are two positions available. The deadline to submit applications is Monday, November 9, 2020.
People of all backgrounds and experience levels are encouraged to apply. These positions are critical to represent the broad perspectives of district patrons.
Background on the Budget Committee:
The Budget Committee is responsible for providing public oversight of budget preparations, recommending changes to the proposed budget, and supplying information to the public about district business and operations.
The Budget Committee meets at least three times per year to 1) review the current year budget and operating results; 2) discuss the proposed budget for the upcoming year; and 3) approve the budget to be considered for adoption by the Board of Directors. Other meetings may be scheduled as the committee deems necessary.
The 10-member committee includes all five THPRD board members and five public members. Applications for the public positions will be reviewed and appointments made by the THPRD Board of Directors. New Budget Committee members are expected to have their first meeting in February 2021, although the schedule is still being finalized.
Applications are available online at http://www.thprd.org/district-information/advisory-committees/budget.
