For the next fiscal year’s budget process, the Portland Utility Board (PUB) will again serve as the Budget Advisory Committee (BAC) for the Portland Water Bureau and the Bureau of Environmental Services.
The PUB is a nine-member citizen oversight body that meets all year to oversee the bureau’s development of financial plans, capital improvement plans, the annual budget, and rate-setting for the City's sewer, stormwater, and water services. The PUB will advise the City Council.
