A Message from the Director

Portrait of Kim Jones.

Kim Jones

The Finance Department is a public facing, customer-oriented department.  The Department is comprised of The Director’s Office, Accounting, Assessment, Parking & Municipal Code Violations, Purchasing, Traffic Violations, and Treasury. We value our employees and deem them our largest city asset.  We take pride in our service delivery, and aim to satisfy our external and internal customer needs.  

Our services span the gamut, from property based customer interaction (taxes, water, refuse, assessment, etc...,), to internal service delivery (Accounting, Debt and Investment management, etc...,).  I often refer to the Finance Department as a cyclops, as there are many prisms emitting through one eye.  Whether interacting with an external or internal customer our purpose and intent is the same, to provide unparalleled customer service delivery.
