Welcome to the Finance Department

The Finance Department ensures accountability through budgeting, accounting and reporting on the municipal financial transactions. Emphasis on infrastructure and asset management has increased awareness of the costs attributed to maintenance, replacement and potential future expansion. A focus on expenditure reduction, changes in operational efficiencies and future grant opportunities are a priority for the municipality. Collection of property taxes and other revenue, along with accounts payables, accounts receivables and payroll are all functions of this department of the municipality. The Finance Department continues to be responsible for generating financial data to monitor organizational progress and accountability.
