In 1981, the City formed the Finance Advisory Commission to advise the City Council on financial matters pertaining to the governance of the City. Due to budget constraints, the Commission was suspended in 2005. In 2007, the Council reconstituted the Finance Commission as a Council Finance Standing Committee to review financial matters, budget, and policies with the City Manager and Finance Director in preparation for City Council meetings. The Mayor appoints two Council members to the committee, who each serve one year terms of office.

Mission Statement
In order to promote the vision for Saratoga, the Council Finance Committee conducts a review and oversight of financial matters in preparation for City Council Meetings. The Finance Committee is charged with providing Council perspective and guidance to staff on financial matters brought forth to Council.
