The Budget Committee’s Finance Investigative Team (FIT) has completed its work and the final report can now be viewed on the City’s website at http://www.eugene-or.gov/FIT. The FIT brought together community members and Budget Committee members to review proposed budget solutions using a standardized evaluation matrix. The focus of the work was on fact finding, with an emphasis on the financial impact of the solutions as they might apply to balancing the FY15 budget.
The FIT website includes materials from each of the five FIT meetings, as well as the final report, which was completed on October 22, 2013. The report includes a review of potential budget balancing items such as personnel costs, growing the economy and tax base, use of Non-General Funds, and others. In addition, there is a link so that community members can send a question or a comment to the Budget Committee about the report.
