Kitsap County Citizenís Budget Committee helps officials with budget decisions 

(Port Orchard, WA)  Kitsap Countyís Board of Commissioners created a new community group that focuses on the County budget during the regular Board meeting Monday night. The Citizen Budget Committee consists of twelve community members with an interest in finance. Their task includes examining County revenue, expenditures, and mandated costs. From this examination they develop recommendations for a sustainable budget to support County services.  

The committee also advises  Commissioners on budget priorities, efficiencies and improvements in service delivery, and assesses county services and customer satisfaction. The committee presents a report, independent of County officials, to the public on County performance. 

The Board is seeking residents to become members of the committee. Candidates must be able to read and interpret financial reports, be thoughtful and visionary, and be able to function as part of an advisory team. The committee meets twice each month, with occasional meetings at other times. Meetings begin later this Spring. Interested persons are encouraged to apply by contacting Jan Koske, Kitsap County Volunteer Services Coordinator at (360) 337-4650 or jkoske@co.kitsap.wa.us. An application may also be completed on line at www.kitsapgov.com/volunteer/current.htm.  Application are accepted through March 28, 2008.
