Budget Committee Vacancy

3/23/2022



Klamath Community College is soliciting applications to fill one (1) vacancy on the Budget Committee, with a term expiring on December 31, 2025.
Oregon Revised Statute (ORS 294.414) delineates the requirements of budget committees and that the committees shall be established in accordance with that section.

It states: 
“The budget committee shall consist of the members of the governing body and a number, equal to the number of members of the governing body, of electors of the municipal corporation appointed by the governing body; if there are electors fewer than the number required, the governing body and the electors who are willing to serve shall be the budget committee; and if there are no electors willing to serve, the governing body shall be the budget committee.“

The essence of the Budget Committee is to serve as the citizen’s representative in developing the annual budget for Klamath Community College. While the Committee cannot usurp the Klamath Community College District’s authority in setting College programs, policies, services, and resources, it does provide valuable oversight of the process. The Committee typically meets once a year in May to review and approve the budget document, as proposed by the Budget Officer, prior to adoption by the Board of Education.

By statute, Budget Committee members are not compensated, nor can they be officers, agents, or employees of the college (ORS 294.414). All Budget Committee members must be eligible voters in Klamath County and are appointed for a 3-year, staggered term.  The appointment will become effective immediately upon the Board of Education’s approval. To be considered during the first review of applications, please submit your application on or before Friday, April 15, 2022 by 5:00 PM. If you have additional questions or want to submit an application please contact Sharon Emery at 541-882-2219, by email at emery@klamathcc.edu. You can also pick-up applications at 7390 South 6th Street, Building 3, Suite 331 Klamath Falls, OR 97603 or visit klamathcc.edu.
