The mission of the Administrative Services Department is to provide accurate and timely financial information to City Council, operating departments, and the public. To achieve this end, the record keeping and reporting are completed in compliance with generally accepted accounting principles. Areas of financial responsibility include utility billing, cash receipting, accounts payable, budgeting, business licensing, and non-departmental charges that are not directly related to a specific department.
The Administrative Services Department collects and disburses all City monies. It maintains accounting records of all monetary transactions, involving cash receipts, accounts payable, payroll, utility billing, business licensing, and oversees the human resources function of the City. The Department manages the prudent investment of currently idle City funds. It also prepares the proposed annual City budget, in conference with various City department directors and key personnel and under the general direction of the City Manager. Following City Council adoption, the final budget is then prepared.
Email correspondence sent to or from the following people via the City's website, if available, are considered public records and may be subject to disclosure and additional distribution pursuant to the Public Records Act and/or Brown Act.
