Basic Local Budget Law Workshops - 2010

This workshop will cover Oregon’s Local Budget Law, including the basic budget document, budget publication requirements and how to impose property taxes. It will cover the procedural steps necessary to adopt a lawful budget. It will also cover changes that may be made to the budget after its adoption, during the fiscal year. The workshop is designed for the budget officers of local taxing districts who prepare the budget, and for budget committee and governing body members who may be new to the process.

Registration & Fees: Workshop is free. No preregistration required.

Hours: 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., with lunch on your own.

Workshop Instructors: Finance & Taxation Analysts with the Oregon Department of Revenue.

Questions? Oregon Department of Revenue Finance & Taxation Unit (503) 945-8293 or finance.taxation@state.or.us

Locations and Dates of 2010 Workshops:
Albany – Tuesday, February 23, Linn County Fairgrounds, 3700 Knox Butte Rd.
Oregon City – Tuesday, March 2, Clackamas Community College, Gregory Forum, 19600 S. Molalla Ave.

Due to budget restrictions, these are the only two workshops we are able to present this year. Our apologies to our clients in Eastern and Southern Oregon. We wish we could come to your area as we have in years past, but we simply do not have the travel budget this year. If you are able to travel, you are welcome to attend either of these sessions. We hope to see you there!

The Local Budgeting Manual was revised in October, 2009. You can review and download the manual at: http://www.oregon.gov/DOR/PTD/ptd_localbudpubs.shtml

For those who intend to download an electronic copy from our website (same URL as for the Local Budgeting Manual, above), the booklets and individual forms should be posted there by January 29, 2010.
