District Budget

This is a summary of information about the District’s Budget.  The entire budget manual can be reviewed at the District’s Office.  The budget manual includes the following sections:  District Profile, Budget Message, Budget Schedule, Justifications sheets on Personal Services, Materials and Services, Capital Outlay, Debt Service, and Other Requirements.

Each line item of the budget summary has an explanation sheet called a budget justification, which gives an explanation of how the money in that line item is planned to be used.

Each year the budget manual is presented to the Budget Committee and available for public review.  It is advertised in the Headlight Herald, at the District Office, City Halls and Post Offices in Manzanita, Nehalem, and Wheeler.   The Budget Committee meetings are open to the public who can comment on the budget during the Budget Committee meeting and a public hearing at the Board of Director’s meeting held in June prior to budget adoption.

TAX RATE:  The permanent tax rate is $1.15 per $1,000 assessed valuation.
