Finance

The mission for the Department of Finance is primarily to protect the City's and therefore the public's assets. The finance department consists of accounting, revenue management and information technology.

Revenue Management
Revenue management consists of; investments, implementation of the business certificate program, the transient occupancy tax collections, accounts receivable, cashiering and bank deposits, revenue forecasting and rate setting and water and sewer utility billing.

Accounting
Accounting consists of; maintaining the general ledger and chart of accounts, reconciling bank statements, monitoring and authorizing departmental purchasing and the City's budget, maintaining the City's fixed asset system, preparing deposits and reports, coordinating disaster costs in the event of a natural disaster for the purpose of recovering funding, providing administrative support by opening and distributing mail and inventorying and ordering supplies

Information Technology
Information Technology consists of; ensuring the support and maintenance of organization wide systems including; telephones, voice mail, cell phones, radios, wireless devices, a windows network for all employees and a separate IBM network for our finance system. Information Technologies job is to provide full support, maintenance and training for all such systems, provide accurate backup of data on a daily basis to ensure minimal loss in an emergency situation and ensure compliance with software copyright and licensing agreements.

Audits
Government agencies are required by law to be audited on an annual basis. We pride ourselves on maintaining very organized and detailed records ensuring a clean audit each year. We are not required annually to produce a CAFR (Comprehensive Annual Financial Report), but choose to do so in an effort to provide the public with an easily readable document which shows our fiscal standing and discloses anything that the public should be aware of.
