The mission of the Finance Department is to enhance and promote professional management of governmental resources. This is accomplished, in part, by identifying, developing and advancing fiscal strategies and practices to account for and safeguard City assets; and by maximizing the return to the city on each dollar saved and each dollar spent for equipment and services.
The Finance Department coordinates, administers and invests the pooled financial resources of the city and provides accounting, payroll, billing, bookkeeping, budgeting, treasury and cashiering services to all city departments, divisions and enterprises.
As the focal point of the city's management information system, this division provides timely and accurate accounting records for all financial transactions and distributes various reports to all levels of city management. In addition to Information Systems, the department oversees the Purchasing, and Warehouse divisions.
