BACKGROUND:

 

Citizen Budget Committee
The State of Oregon requires that all local governments establish a budget committee made up of citizen members and elected officials. The purpose of the budget committee is to promote transparency, efficiency and economy in the expenditure of public funds. Pursuant to Oregon Revised Statutes (ORS) 294.341, 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 qualified electors of the municipal corporation appointed by the governing body.”

 

Citizens Advisory Traffic Commission

The Citizens Advisory Traffic Commission makes recommendations to the City Council in the area of traffic movement and safety. Salem Revised Code Chapter 5 states the City Council make appointments to the Citizens Advisory Traffic Commission.


Community Police Review Board

The Community Police Review Board is to review unresolved complaints against members of the Salem Police Department. Salem Revised Code 20I states that the City Council make appointments to the Community Police Review Board, which is comprised of seven members and two alternate members.

 

Downtown Advisory Board

This joint advisory board advises the Urban Renewal Agency Board on matters related to urban renewal and tax increment allocations and advises the City Council on matters related to the Downtown Parking District and the Parking Fund.

 

Salem Parks and Recreation Advisory Board

The Salem Parks and Recreation Advisory Board recommends to and advises City Council on the acquisition, development, and maintenance of park land and recreational facilities.


Salem Planning Commission

The Salem Planning Commission acts as an advisory commission to the City Council with a broad scope of concern in promoting the growth and orderly development of the City of Salem.

 

Salem Public Art Commission

The Salem Public Art Commission is charged with overseeing the City’s public art collection and recommending the Public Art Fund annual budget to City Council. The Commission’s primary duties include acquisition, maintenance, cataloguing and deaccessioning art within the City’s collection.

 

While these recommended appointments, reappointments, and interviews are important to the ongoing viability of the City’s boards and commissions, volunteer positions are almost always available. To learn of current vacancies, interested individuals may refer to the boards and commissions page on the City’s website at <https://www.cityofsalem.net/boards-and-commissions>. Email inquiries may be sent to boardsandcommissions@cityofsalem.net <mailto:boardsandcommissions@cityofsalem.net>.
