Finance Department

We invite you to learn more about the City's annual budget, comprehensive annual financial report (CAFR) and check registers. We also have information pertaining to doing business with the City through our purchasing agent, financial policy information, hotel occupancy taxes, and information detailing the current tax rate and debt obligations.

Additionally, the Finance Department operates as a support agency and provides financial information to the various City Departments. The Finance Department is responsible for the overall fiscal activities of the City's operations, which include Accounts Receivable, Accounts Payable, Payroll processing, investment of funds, and budget preparation. We have been active in the process of acquiring short-term and long-term funding for City operating and Capital Improvement Projects through the securing of Certificates of Obligation Bond issues.

Our goal is to ensure a prompt and efficient system for the processing and maintaining of all financial transactions of the City. Again, we invite you to learn more about the City's finances and direct any questions to a member of our staff.
