Financial Services

The Finance Department ensures accountability through budgeting, accounting and reporting on all municipal financial transactions. A focus on expenditure reduction, changes in operational efficiencies and future grant opportunities are a priority for the municipality. The Department is responsible for maintaining the Township’s accounting and other financial records, Accounts Payable, Accounts Receivable, Investing and Borrowing of Municipal Funds, Budget Preparation and Monitoring, Financial Reporting, Asset Management, Internal Audit, and Tax Billing and Collection.


One of the most important tasks each year are the annual budgets which requires good planning. Council balances the provision of quality services while maintaining property taxes at a reasonable level. The budget process starts with Council focusing on its goals and the Asset Management Plan. Municipal staff consider these policies as they develop the budget details. Council makes final budget decisions on behalf of our Township.
