The Mission of the Finance Department is to manage the financial affairs of the City to ensure its fiscal stability for its citizens. We are committed to achieving this through data analysis, cost-effective measures, strong internal controls, transparency and excellent customer service.
The Finance Department is responsible for the oversight and integrity of all fiscal activities of the City. This department provides support to other City departments through the provision of comprehensive financial services, such as: budget compliance; asset management; cash management; debt management; investing; vendor pay; revenue collection; accounting; financial reporting; payroll; business licensing; internal control monitoring; and inventory control. Finance administers the City’s suite of financial software and the on-line payment services. This department works in conjunction with the utility billing operation to provide customer service and its revenue collection. Finance is accountable to the City management, citizens and external entities for its accuracy in financial reporting and record-keeping.
The Finance Department is recognized annually by the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) as a recipient of both the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award (since 1989) and Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting (since 1985).
