The Philomath School District’s Budget Committee is seeking community volunteers to fill two open seats. The deadline to apply with the completion of a candidate information sheet is Friday, Sept. 30.

Each position carries a term of three years. The district typically schedules a Budget Committee work session in the fall and then another the following February. The actual committee meetings — usually one or two — occur in early May to late June, if necessary, and usually run no longer than two hours.

The School Board anticipates reviewing, interviewing and appointing Budget Committee members at its Oct. 20 regular meeting.

The Budget Committee is made up of the five School Board members and currently includes three community members — Shelly Brown, Carol Leach and Kimberly Lopez.
