REDMOND, OR -- Redmond officials don't believe the city's budget is effectively meeting the public safety needs of a growing region, so the Budget Committee will meet twice this week to discuss the latest funding proposal. Tuesday night, they'll talk about proposed changes with the City Manager. Budget Director Jason Neff says there's typically more balance in a budget when it comes to growth, but he tells KBND News, "We're more focusing this budget on public safety. So, we have three new officers proposed in the budget and one evidence officer who will help process all the evidence we have."

He's says Tuesday's meeting is mostly informational. "The City Manager will give his message, kind of kick things off. He'll be talking about some of those trade-offs when adding more officers and public safety areas, we have needs. So it'll be a good discussion."
Neff hopes the Budget Committee will then approve the budget at Wednesday's meeting so it can be sent to City Council for adoption prior to the July first fiscal deadline. Both meetings begin at 6 p.m. at Redmond City Hall.
