The Finance department office handles all budget, accounting, payroll and accounts payable information. It is also responsible for all utility billing.
The highest priority of the Department is to invest, manage and monitor the City's financial resources according to sound operating practices, and to report the results of the City's operations in compliance with generally accepted accounting principles, as well as with Federal, State, and local laws and regulations.
In addition, the Finance Department provides pro-active and on-going assistance to other City departments to help them perform basic financial functions, produce reports that provide useful information for managing the financial resources and operations entrusted to them, and deal with long-term financial planning. The Finance Department also coordinates the budget process.
Finally, the Department issues the City's Annual Comprehensive Financial Report (ACFR) annually which reports on the results of the City's annual audit performed by an independent audit firm.
