The Department of Financial Services is responsible for managing and maintaining the financial integrity of the Town through accurate and timely financial management and reporting in accordance with the highest standards of governmental accounting practices.
While many of the Department's programs service the internal operating departments (Accounts Payable, Payroll, Budgeting and Debt Management), the Revenue Collection Office provides services directly to all residents by billing and collecting property tax payments and parking ticket payments. Many of these services, including looking up your tax bills, paying your tax bill or appealing and paying your parking ticket, are provided on-line and can be accessed directly by the links.
The Finance Department also administers a comprehensive risk management program for the Town and Board of Education to analyze the exposures to loss and implement effective strategies to minimize the financial impact of these potential losses on the organization. A combination of risk financing techniques is used to protect the Town's assets including its workforce, property and financial integrity. The program includes claims administration, safety awareness, loss control training, actuarial analysis, contract review, insurance procurement and self-insurance funding for liability, property, and workers' compensation exposures.
The webpage also provides a mechanism for distributing the latest information on the Town's financial operations with links to a variety of financial reports including our annual financial reports, annual operating and capital budgets, official statements for bond sales and credit rating reports.
