Finance & Accounting
The Finance and Accounting Division is responsible for the collection, monitoring and disbursement of all monies for the City.

Accounts receivable, accounts payable, issuance of purchase orders and all aspects of payroll are functions of the Finance Department. The department also invests idle funds, coordinates debt issuance and prepares the City’s annual property tax levy. The Finance Department realizes they are stewards of public funds and its mission is to ensure the most efficient and effective use of those funds.
