Finance


A strong local government must be accountable and transparent to all of its residents.

The operations of the City's Finance Department are under the direction of Vern Blaze, Finance Director. In addition to the Finance Director, the Finance department consists of two full-time employees and two part-time employees. The Finance Department sees to it that there is a careful and accurate accounting of monies budgeted for each department and that all State and regulatory guidelines are met.
