PRIVILEGE LICENSE

The Finance Department administers the financial affairs of the City.  This encompasses investing City funds; maintaining accounting and financial records; billing and collecting all city monies; including water and sewer utility accounts; and preparing the annual budget and Comprehensive Annual Financial Report. 

NEW POLICIES

  • City Code § 9-28 requires that garbage and recycling roll-out containers must be moved back to the house after 9:00 pm for storage.  If the carts are left out after 9:00 pm on the scheduled service day, a one time courtesy letter will be sent to all new accounts reminding the resident or business that the container must be removed from the curb by 9:00 pm on the scheduled service day.  If roll out cart remains on the curb for 5 days after this letter is sent, a $25 fee will be assessed and placed on the utility bill.  If the container is not rolled back to the house by 9:00 pm on subsequent scheduled service days a $25 fee will be assessed and placed on the utility bill after verification by a City or contractor employee.  To read entire ordinance, click here.
