St. Helens Budget Committee seeks volunteer applicants

The city of St. Helens is seeking applications for volunteers to serve on the St. Helens Budget Committee.

The committee is tasked with preparing the budget for the new fiscal year.

The St. Helens City Council appoints five city residents to serve on the com-

mittee in addition to themselves.

Budget process trainings and orientations are held in February for committee members, and final budget adoption usually occurs mid-June. Budget committee members serve on a volunteer basis for three-year terms.
