Background

The Budget Committee reviews the City’s financial plans and policies, including the annual budget. The 12-member committee is comprised of the six elected City Councilors and six members from the community. Appointed by the City Council, each of the committee’s six community members must live in the ward they represent. Meetings are typically held between April and June, but the committee may also meet on an “as needed” basis.

The SEDA Budget Committee is comprised of the 12 members of the City of Springfield’s Budget Committee along with a representative from Glenwood and Downtown Springfield. Appointed by the City Council, each representative must own a business or live within the Glenwood or Downtown Springfield area.
