Finance Department

The Finance Department acts as the "Reception Desk" of Town Hall responding to and directing inquiries from the general public. The department also administers the Town's financial accounting system to account for all revenues and expenditures maintaining a system to monitor, control, and report all activity to ensure the Town's financial integrity is not compromised.  The department is also responsible for administering the Town's annual budget and Comprehensive Annual Financial Report preparation and presentation; managing accounts payable and accounts receivable records; the collection and processing of Town-related payments such as dog licenses, court fines, and building permit fees; managing cash flow and investment functions, per the Town's investment policy; internal and external financial reporting to staff, Town Board, and other interested parties; and developing and implementing the Town's financial policies and procedures.

 

2014 dog licenses are available for $5 for spayed or neutered dogs; unaltered dogs are $15.  Proof of rabies vaccination is required.  Per Municipal Code, owners within the Town limits are required to maintain a current dog license. Licenses are valid for the calendar year 2014.

 

On September 11, 2013, steady rainfall caused damages to Town buildings, equipment, and infrastructure.  Recovery from the flood damage will continue throughout 2014 and into future years.  The Town has been awarded funding through the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the State of Colorado Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management, and Colorado Intergovernmental Risk Sharing Agency (CIRSA), the Town's insurer.   The Town will have a 12.5% match for all FEMA and State reimbursements.  Due to delays in reimbursements, the Town has funded all flood response and recovery projects out of cash on hand.
