ODFW hosts town hall meeting in La Grande to discuss proposed budget

May 4, 2016

SALEM, Ore.—The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife will host a town hall meeting Thursday, May 12 at Island City Hall, Community Room, 1605 Island Ave. The meeting, one of several that have occurred around the state this month, is being held to gather public input on the agency's proposed 2017-2019 budget.

The meeting will be held from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., and the proposed budget, which is being developed by ODFW and an external budget advisory committee, will be presented for review and comment. The proposed 2017-19 budget does not include any new increases in fees for recreational and commercial licenses.

Public comments will be used to help refine the budget before it is presented to the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission on June 9. Once a proposed budget is approved by the Commission, it will be submitted to the Governor for her consideration. The budget will ultimately be determined by the 2017 Legislature.

Additional ODFW budget information can be found on the ODFW website,

Comments on the agency proposed budget are welcome and can be submitted through June 1, 2016, by email to or by mail to ODFW Director’s Office, 4034 Fairview Industrial Dr. SE, Salem, OR 7302-1142. Public testimony will also be heard at the Commission meeting on June 9 in Salem.
