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.
