Budget Advisory Committee Develops One-Time Budget Cuts for FY 2011-12


Portland Fire & Rescue (PF&R) held our second Budget Advisory Committee (BAC) meeting on December 15, 2010. 

In this year's budget process, Public Safety bureaus have been directed by Mayor Sam Adams to submit 0.75% one-time budget reduction packages.  For PF&R, this equates to a proposed one-time cut of $671,910 from our budget. 

Through a collaborative process between staff, labor management, stakeholders, and citizens, PF&R created a list during the December 2010 BAC meeting of one-time cuts to present to Fire Commissioner Randy Leonard for consideration. 

PF&R's budget submittal is due to the Office of Management and Finance by January 31st.  View other important budget dates here.

Stay tuned for more information in next month's newsletter, the Fire Blog, and PF&R’s website on decisions related to PF&R's budget. You can also learn more about and follow our budget process at
