Multnomah County's Budget Advisory Committees (CBACs) have spent the past several months developing their recommendations on department budgets, which are presented to the Board of County Commissioners throughout the month of May.

CBACs are groups of community members that review and make recommendations on county departmental budgets and operations.  CBAC’s are one of the key ways that the county receives community input on its budget priorities. CBAC volunteers hear directly from department directors and other staff about the county’s programs and services. Together, they make recommendations to the Board of Commissioners about how Multnomah County can best use its resources to serve the community.

The Central CBAC is made up of one representative from each CBAC and makes county-wide recommendations to the Chair, the Board and the public, that may cross departmental lines and affect one or more departments. Read their recommendations here:
