Treasurer's Department Overview 

All funds enter or exit the City through the Treasurer’s Office. It is here that taxes, water bills, and other miscellaneous collections are received and recorded in the City’s financial system.  The office similarly handles electronic funds transfers from the federal and state governments, as well as from private entities. Because so much money passes through this department, all employees here must be bonded.
The Treasurer’s Office provides safekeeping and investment for City funds. Any money that the City spends is disbursed through the Treasurer’s Department. Staff reconciles bank accounts and the details of all receivables to the general ledger. The Treasurer works closely with the CFO in the issuing of both short-term and long-term debt.
