The citizens of Eugene are the most important part of the City organization. Councilors are elected by the citizens to represent their interests on the Council, and city services are directed to meet their needs. Public hearings are routinely held so that citizens can contribute to the City budgeting process. To receive notices of upcoming Budget Committee meetings via email or text on your mobile device, please sign up for the Budget Updates email list.
Citizens can provide input on how the City is governed by joining an advisory board or commission, including the Budget Committee. For more information on how to apply for any of the boards or commissions at the City, please visit www.eugene-or.gov/bcc or call the City Manager’s Office at 541-682-5010.
