The Westminster City Council is seeking volunteers for a new financial advisory task force to help devise a long-term strategy to stabilize the city’s budget.

The city is facing a $5.39 million budget deficit, a shortfall that is only expected to increase in coming years.

The City Council will appoint five members to the task force at their Oct. 28 meeting. Once the task force is assembled, the city will hold a public study session to discuss the budget.
