The major goals are to attain efficiencies in operations, flexibility in resource utilization, economies of larger scale operations, elimination of duplication, improved communications and coordination of all fiscal-related functions, new initiatives, special studies, and research projects. The Department was officially created on January 2, 2000 and includes the following divisions:

  • Accounting Department
  • Assessing Department
  • Treasury/Collection Department

The Department is overseen by the Director of Finance who is responsible for the management of the administrative functions of the various divisions as well as coordination of all functional activities. The Town’s Charter creates the Director’s position.
