Roles and Responsibilities

Local government finance is a complex and often misunderstood area of municipal service. Those who specialize in this field may work in the area of budgeting, investments, accounts payable/receivable, revenue and expenditure projections as well as debt management. The funds that a local government receives are very important and should be managed with a focus on fiscal responsibility (managing the money well) and transparency (explaining how the money is used) to the community.

In Rhome, the City Treasurer is also the City Secretary and this position works very closely with the City Administrator (Manager) and the Accounting Specialist.  This team collaborates to provide reports to elected officials, prepare the annual budget, publish the documents for review, analyze revenues and projects, handle accounts payable/receivable, reconcile the bank accounts, and a host of other duties to help ensure we are managing the funds that have been entrusted to the community.
