Deschutes County is currently looking for a citizen to serve on the Deschutes County Budget Committee.  Applications are being taken now and until October 6, and interviews are expected to be held in November.

Budget Committee Members are responsible for reviewing a proposed budget and recommending a final version to the Board of County Commissioners for adoption. Citizens with finance or business management experience are encouraged to apply.
