Tribal Council posts adjusted 1990 operating budget
The Warm Springs 1 rioai coun
cil ratified, through resolution
7936, the 1990 tribal operating bud
get. In response to concerns ad
dressed at district and general coun
cil meetings in Octoberand Novem
ber, Tribal Council approved
changes within the budget that
reflect added emphasis in numer
ous areas. The changes do not alter
the bottom line of the budget.
Of the $18,545,150 operating
budget, $170,000 were shifted from
certain areas and redirected toward
child neglect and abuse, substance
abuse, education opportunities and
communications. Some of the
adjustments will allow for addi
tional positions, such as in public
relations and education. The deci
sion to change the appropriations
"was based on what was heard in
Jisinci and general council meet
ings," said Chief Executive Officer
Ken Smith.
Grant to fund exhibits
The M.J. Murdock Charitable
Trust has awarded Middle Oregon
Indian Historical Society a $300,000
grant, according to Delbert Frank,
Sr., the Society's chairman. The
grant will help fund the tribal
museum's education exhibits.
This is the fourth major grant
received since the October 27, 1988
$2.5 million tribal referendum was
approved by tribal voters. The funds
committed to the museum project
now total $3.8 million, according
to Dr. Duane King, executive direc
tor of MOIHS. "We're happy to
have received this expression of
confidence in our project from such
a prestigious funding agcncy,"said
Since its inception, the project
has always been percived as a part
nership among the Tribes, the fed
eral government, the State of
Oregon and private funding agen
cies, i his grant is tne second cut
from a major private agency in the
Northwest. The Fred Meyer
Foundation of Portland also
awarded the Museum a $300,000
grant. Federal grants have been
received from the National Endow
ment for the Humanities and Hous
ing and Urban Development.
The Murdock award is in the
form of a "top-off grant which
requires that all but the last $300,000
of the $4.5 million goal be raised
before the funds are made availa
ble. At present, $700,000 is still
needed to reach the goal. Two
proposals are now pending, includ
ing one with the State of Oregon
Regional Strategy Program, w hich,
if funded, will bring the project
very close to the campaign goal.
"We're very optimistic about
reaching the fund raising goal in
time for the ground breaking cere
mony, scheduled for spring. 1990,"
said King.
Areas that include decreases are
the office of the chief executive
officer, governmental affairs, pub
lic safety, utilties, personnel and
development, human services, fi
nancial services, economic devel
opment and natural resources.
The CEO's budget was reduced
when special projects revenue was
cut back by $30,000. Another
$34,500 was added when an addi
tional position was added to the
public relations office. Net increase
is $3,500.
The projects portion of the
governmental affairs budget was
reduced by $10,000.
Public safety reduced their budget
by $ 1 0,000, but added $40,000 with
personnel changes. Net increase is

operating budget by $10,000.
The personnel and development
branch budget, specifically the
computer training center, was
reduced by $25,000.
The human services branch re
duced their budget by $21,000,
with small portions coming from
numerous departments. The in
crease in the branch comes from
intensified drug testing and another
position in education. Net increase
is $76,000.
Financial services reduced their
budget by $50,000.
Economic development reduced
their budget by $10,000 while the
natural resources branch reduced
their budget by $5,000.
Copies of the budget are posted
