The Town Accountant works with management and Town officials to establish and maintain sound financial policies, controls and the Town’s credit rating.
Functions of the Accounting office include the weekly town-wide accounts payable and payroll processes, including processing all invoices and payrolls, and creating and submitting warrants for approval. General ledger accounts are analyzed and reconciled. The Town Accountant submits the combined balance sheet, schedule A and free cash certification request annually to the State. The department maintains fixed asset records and assists with the annual audit, retains grants and contracts, monitors grant and contract spending and processes invoices and collects revenue for the Town’s special details. These financial controls are essential to properly safeguard taxpayer’s dollars.
