Sedona AZ (October 12, 2011) – The City of Sedona is seeking to fill three available seats on the Budget Oversight Commission. The vacancies are for two-year terms, from January 1, 2012 through December 31, 2014. Citizens interested in serving on this commission must be Sedona residents, or own a business within the corporate limits of the City of Sedona. The deadline to submit applications to be considered to serve on the Commission is Thursday, November 17, 2011.
Meetings will typically be held the Third Wednesday of each Month, November through May from 10:00 a.m. to noon.
The Budget Commission advises staff and the City Council in preparation of the five-year capital plan and annual budget. The commission is solely advisory to the Council but plays a key role in providing important public input on budget policy, including revenue recommendations, capital planning processes and prioritization for continuation or elimination of programming and services in order to maintain a balanced budget.
Commission members must commit to becoming familiar with the Annual Budget and Budget Process and various other financial policies and reporting tools. The Annual Budget and Audit documents are available at the City Clerk’s Office or on the city website at www.SedonaAZ.gov/Finance.
The City Council is interested in a group that broadly represents the community; therefore a financial background is not required to serve. Applications may be picked up at the City Clerk’s Office, 102 Roadrunner Drive, Sedona City Hall.
