What is a budget committee?
A budget committee is a group of school board members and citizens that reviews the school district’s proposed budget. The committee is composed of the school board and an equal number of citizens. The committee reviews the budget at a public meeting. The committee can make changes to the proposed budget to reflect changes it wants to make in the local government’s spending in order to meet the goals and objectives established by the school board. When it is satisfied, the committee approves the budget. Each of the members has the same authority, whether school board member or appointed citizen. Each appointed member is appointed to finish out the term of a person previously appointed to a position or if for a new position for a 3-year term.
