Committee Presents Options to Fill Budget Gap for Public Feedback

At its meeting on Monday, December 9, the Eugene Budget Committee wrapped up its work of the last several months to gain a better understanding of the City’s General Fund budget shortfall and develop options to fill the gap. At this point the gap for FY15 is anticipated to be approximately $3 million.

The committee considered a range of reduction options representing alternative approaches to address the shortfall, each striking a different balance of service priorities. Each approach has a different combination or focus on service areas that could be preserved or reduced. A matrix outlining all six options is available at

Public hearings on the options will be held on Tuesday, January 21 at 5:30 p.m. in Harris Hall (125 E. 8th Ave.) and on Tuesday, January 28 at 5:30 p.m. in the Bascom-Tykeson Room at the Eugene Public Library (100 W. 10th Ave.). Community members will be asked to respond to these options or suggest their own.

Following the Budget Committee public hearings in January, the City Manager will finalize his proposed budget, which will be informed by the Budget Committee’s work and the public feedback. The City Manager’s Proposed Budget will then be presented to the Budget Committee and City Council for review and approval.
