The Finance Department supervises two divisions. The Accounting Division ensures that budgetary and financial requirements are met and reported accurately; auditing and accounting standards are met or exceeded; the City's annual audit is properly managed and reported; payments of invoices are made appropriately; billings for water, sewer, and other customers are issued timely; and grants and loans to the City are appropriately utilized and reported. The Finance Director serves on the Building Authority Board, Economic Development Corporation, and Brownfield Redevelopment Authority Board.


The Assessing Division values property within the City on a mass appraisal basis for taxation purposes and provides documentation to the public, as needed. The Finance Director oversees the contract for assessing services with the Ottawa County Equalization Department. Equalization Director Michael R. Galligan acts as the City Assessor for signatory purposes and under all Charter and legal requirements and has assigned Joshua Morgan to be the local contact.


The Finance Department's main objectives are to continue to provide "clean" audits through proper accounting of City fiscal operations and to assure prompt invoicing and payment for chargeable City services. Further objectives include comprehensive budgeting, auditing and accounting spreadsheets, timely cash management and reporting and futuring the accounting and auditing functions. New reporting requirements from the State of Michigan are also high priorities of the Finance Department
