Community Budget Forums and Budget Committee Public Hearing: these meetings will provide you with the opportunity to share with City Council how you will be impacted by the City’s budget decisions and express which City services are most important to Portland residents. The forums will be similar to a Council hearing, in which you can sign-up to testify before City Council.
