Budget Advisory Committee (BAC)

As part of the annual budget process, each City Bureau forms a Budget Advisory Committee (BAC) that includes management, labor, customers, and internal and external stakeholders. For the FY 2014-15 budget planning process, BDS has convened a BAC with representatives from the following groups:

  • DRAC (Development Review Advisory Committee)
  • Development Industry)
  • Community Organizations
  • BDS Employees

The primary purpose of the BAC is to evaluate the bureau’s budget request in light of the City’s budget directions, the bureau’s financial resources, and customers’ needs. The BAC will meet several times during the budget preparation process (November 2013- January 2014) and will submit recommendations to the BDS Director. 

BAC meetings will be held in Room 5A (5th floor) of the 1900 Building, 1900 SW 4th Ave., and are open to the public. BAC meetings are scheduled for the following dates (all meetings are from 12:00 - 1:30pm):

  • Tuesday, November 12, 2013
  • Tuesday, December 3, 2013
  • Tuesday, December 17, 2013
