Budget Documents

The State of Oregon, through its local budget law, requires that each local government prepare and adopt an annual or biennial budget. The budget law is a group of statutes that sets standard procedures, encourages citizen involvement, provides methods or estimating figures, and offers a method to outline the local government's programs and services.
