Mission Statement:

The Treasurer/Collector’s Office is responsible for the billing and collection of amounts due to the city, including Real Estate Tax, Personal Property Tax, Motor Vehicle Excise Tax, and Water/Sewer Utility Bills. Additionally, we receive Parking Meter receipts, Federal and State reimbursements and grants, as well as a myriad of miscellaneous departmental permits, licenses and fees. The department is also responsible for the timely disbursements of all payrolls to City, School and retired (non-teacher retiree) employees; as well as timely disbursement of payments to the City's suppliers and vendors according to the order of appropriate city officials. The department also issues debt for both short- and long-term borrowing, which represents the investment the city often makes in its capital infrastructure. The department is also responsible for the reconciliation of all City bank accounts.
