City of Redmond seeks community members for budget team

The City of Redmond is beginning the budgeting process for the 2019-2020 biennial budget and is in need of residents to volunteer for an important role as a member of the Civics Results Team. This team will evaluate programs under the city’s six priorities, developed by citizens in 2008 (business vitality, clean and green Environment, community building, infrastructure and growth, responsible government and safety).

Following initial training, Civic Results Team members will work together to prioritize city budget programs based on their likelihood to contribute toward the identified priority and the city’s vision. They will recommend to the mayor and department directors programs that should be considered for inclusion in the preliminary budget.

The city recruits the Civic Results Team every even year to support Redmond’s Budgeting by Priorities process instituted in 2008. This innovative budget process was used to develop the city’s last five biennial budgets and set performance measures for the government services provided. The Budgeting by Priorities process has moved the focus of Redmond’s budget activities from one of evaluating budget increments to focusing on programs most valued by the residents.

Interested Redmond residents or those who work in Redmond are encouraged to apply by sending a letter of interest to Mayor John Marchione at mayor@redmond.gov. Volunteer requirements include the flexibility to meet with city staff for two hours in the evening and the ability to devote up to 35 working hours over a period of 11 weeks between April and July. Letters of interest will be accepted for consideration until March 2.
