BDS is continuing to work on its budget request for Fiscal Year 2012-13 (July 2012 – June 2013). All City bureaus are required to submit their budget requests to the City Budget Office by January 30, 2012.
As in previous years, BDS is seeking input on its budget request from a variety of sources: the BDS Budget Advisory Committee (composed of customers, stakeholders, community members, and BDS staff), the Development Review Advisory Committee (DRAC), the BDS Labor Management Committee (LMC), and bureau employees. The Budget Advisory Committee (BAC) has met three times, with an additional meeting scheduled for January 10th.
We need your ideas! If you have ideas regarding BDS’s budget for the next fiscal year, please send them along to Mark Fetters, BAC Coordinator at (503) 823-1028 or firstname.lastname@example.org. You can find more information about the bureau’s budget and the BAC, including meeting agendas and minutes at http://www.portlandonline.com/bds/index.cfm?c=53730 or by contacting Mark Fetters.
