Finance Department

Michelle Hoovler, Finance Officer, 678-3009

The City's Finance Department is made up of the Finance Officer and a Finance Assistant. Since the Department handles all of the City's finances, we must work closely with all of the departments within the City. We must also maintain professional relationships with many outside organizations such as banks, vendors, and other government agencies. The major responsibilities of The Finance Office include the following:

  • Handling all of accounts payable and receivable

  • Monthly balancing and preparing financial reports for internal use by City Council,Department Heads, and Arts Council

  • Completing required financial reports such as quarterly payroll reports, AG-385, EEO-4, and grant status reports

  • Maintaining all personnel files

  • Calculating and preparing payroll on a biweekly basis

  • Preparing Tax forms such as W-9s, W-2s, 1099s and tax exemption forms

  • Reviewing interest rates and options for investing The City's monies

There is also an elected City Controller who oversees the Finance Office. He has several duties which include signing the reports and checks that we prepare, and serving on the Pension Boards.
