Proposed Tribal Budget 2001 posted September 28
This proposed General Fund budget is
posted for the information of members of the
Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs. This
budget will provide funds for government
operations and program services for the
calendar year 200 1 . More detailed budget
information will be distributed at budget
hearings in October and November or can be
i requested from the Tribes' Budget Depart-
ment, Finance Branch, at the main Adminis
j For the past several years, Tribal offi-
cials have alerted Tribal members that,
beginning in 2001, revenues will begin to
decrease significantly from current levels,
j The new Pelton Project Agreement will help
; stabilize hydroelectric related revenues but at
j a lower level than before. When combined
i with decreasing timber harvests and stumpage
revenues, annual budget deficits of $4-5
million are projected to begin in 2002.
This proposed budget is based on the
2000 approved budget for program opera
tions. The proposed budget includes requested
program additions and initiatives from Branch
Managers and Directors as listed below. Thus
we have posted a "deficit" budget to inform
Tribal members of all requested increases
prior to final appropriation action by Tribal
Tribal Executive Management has
developed and proposed to the Tribal Council
a 10-year Financial Plan designed to maintain
the Tribes financial health through the next
decade. The plan proposes to reduce tribal
government program expenditures over time
and direct new investments towards business
ventures that will increase Tribal revenues
and provide new, non-government job oppor
tunities. A key element of this proposal
includes a fund source of $3.5 million from
existing undesignated fund balance (working
capital). These funds will be used for new
revenuejob investments ($2.5 million) and
infrastructure projects ($1.0 million). The
increase in the proposed budget is partially
due to this additional $3.5 million.
Budget hearings and district meetings
will be conducted by Tribal Council represen
tatives during October and November regard
ing this proposed budget. After the Tribal
Council has evaluated community input they
will have the opportunity to modify or reduce
the proposed budget consistent with antici
pated revenues and the proposed 10-year
This 2001 proposed Tribal Budget was
approved for posting by the Tribal Council in
accordance with Tribal Appropriation Ordi
nance No. 67 and Article V, Section 1 (t) of
the Tribal Constitution and By-Laws, as
amended. This budget will be posted at the
main Administration building, at the Warm
Springs Post Office and at the Simnasho
Charles V. Jackson
The proposed budget is posted at the
