The financial integrity of our City government is of utmost importance. City government is accountable to its citizens for the use of public dollars. Resources should be used wisely to ensure adequate funding for the services, public facilities and infrastructure necessary to meet the community's present and future needs.
The Finance Department is the hub of all financial activities for the City. Municipal Court transactions, billings and receipts for utilities and assessments, lien searches and customer service are all included in this department. The Finance Department provides central accounting services for all City departments and the Urban Renewal Agency. This department is responsible for accounts receivable, accounts payable, payroll and investment of City funds.
Preparation of fiscal reports, bond sales, rate and fee studies and financial research are all services provided by the Finance Department to other departments and as requested by the City Council and City Manager. Finance is also responsible for the preparation of the annual Budget and the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR).
