Balancing the Accounts

The Finance Department is responsible for administering the City’s financial policies and procedures which include: accounts payable, accounts receivable, annual audit process, annual budget preparation, cash and investment management, financial reporting, and business licenses, and building permitting. The department establishes and maintains an accounting and reporting system in accordance with State and Federal laws, and Generally Accepted Accounting Principles. 

The Finance Department consists of the Finance Director, Accounts Receivable and Accounts Payable clerks. We strive to provide the highest attainable level of citizen-employee service while managing all aspects of the town’s finances.
