Finance Committee

The Finance Committee is composed of all members of the City Council. It was established to review and recommend funding for all operational priorities of the City, including but not limited to the Annual Operating Budget, Annual Appropriation Ordinance, Annual Tax Levy Ordinance, and other policies and procedures applicable to the financial health and systems of the City.

The Finance Committee meets six times per year - once per quarter at City Hall, 220 E. Deerpath, plus two budget workshops at Municipal Services, 800 N. Field Drive.

Finance Committee meetings are broadcast LIVE and rebroadcast Tuesday 5:00 p.m. and Thursday at 7:00 p.m. on City 17.  A DVD copy of the meeting is available in the Reference Section at Lake Forest Library.
