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. BDS convenes 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 submits recommendations to the BDS Director. 

For more information, contact Ray Galinat, BDS BAC Coordinator, at (503) 823-7834 or
