Finance and Administrative Services

The Finance and Administrative Services Department is responsible for providing oversight and support for the city’s financial, administrative, and technology operations.

To ensure the financial integrity of the city, qualified and educated personnel of the highest moral standards are employed by the department and separated into five functional divisions, including Accounting, Budget, Contracts and Procurement, Grants Administration and Revenue Management.

The department prepares monthly financial reports and distributes these reports to the city manager, mayor and city council in order to keep them informed of the expenditures of each department and the financial status of the city.  

As required, the Finance Department records all city revenues; ensures that adequate funds are available to meet daily financial obligations; ensures departmental expenditures are within budget; prepares payrolls, accounts payable payments and accounts receivable transactions; monitors businesses to ensure appropriate licenses are obtained and performs cash and debt service management; provides contract and procurement oversight; prepares annual budgets; and assists external auditors in completing annual audits.
