The primary mission of the Treasurer & Collector is to act as the Town’s receipting and disbursing agent of public financial assets in order to maximize the utilization and safekeeping of Town funds.
The Office of the Treasurer and Collector of Taxes is responsible for the timely billing and collection of 65% of the Town’s operating revenues. This equates to the issuance of approximately 39,000 billings annually. The department also functions as the disbursing agent for the Town - in which payroll and vendor checks in the excess of 16,000 checks and direct deposit vouchers are issued annually.
The department also issues all authorized debt for both short and long term borrowing.
