Financial accountability is achieved through reporting, monitoring, controlling and auditing programs managed by the department. Annual and Provisional Five-Year Financial Plans and Year-end Financial Reports provide key financial information and results to keep taxpayers, residents, business leaders and other interested parties informed in the financial performance and delivery of City programs and services. 

Finance is responsible for the administration and collection of Property Tax and Utilities as well as the Licensing program.
