About the Department

The Department of Finance has the responsibility of creating budgets, reports, issuing purchase orders, employee payroll, and many other financial functions.

As budgets are developed, the department is called upon by Council to provide a breakdown of costs so Council can come to an informed decision as to how City resources will be spent. Throughout the year, the Finance Department advises Council as to the condition of the budget.
