City of Redmond seeks community members for budget team

Letters of interest will be accepted through June 9.

Every two years, Redmond seeks a budget team of community members to support the city’s Budgeting by Priorities process, and this year is no different. Redmond will shortly begin the process for the 2023 to 2024 biennial budget and wishes to find community members to volunteer on the Civics Results team.

The Civics Results team will evaluate programs under the city’s four priorities which are healthy and sustainable, safe and resilient, strategic and responsive, and vibrant and connected. Following an initial overview of the budget process, city operations, and introductions to city leadership, the Civic Results team will prioritize city budget programs.

The programs will be prioritized based on expected contributions toward outcomes identified by the community, while also meeting the Redmond’s vision. The team will report to the Mayor and department director programs.

Volunteer requirements include the ability to meet remotely with city staff two hours on Thursday evenings from June 16 to July 14. Those who are interested in joining Redmond’s Civics Results team are encouraged to send a letter of interest to Mayor Birney at Letters of interest will be accepted through June 9.
