Town Account

General Ledger accounts are analyzed and reconciled. The department files quarterly payroll reports, assists in creating W2s and 1099s, and files the annual Schedule A and free cash certification request. The Department also assists with the annual audit and maintains fixed asset records:

    • Prepares monthly budget balances for Department Head review.
    • Reconciles Cash and Receivables quarterly to the Treasurers Office.
    • Reconciles utilities accounts to the Light Department.
    • Reviews receipt reports
    • Maintains fixed Asset records, Debt Schedules and contracts town-wide.

    The Budget function includes co-coordinating the annual budget process for the Town, preparing the budget book for the departments reporting to the Board of Selectmen, assisting all departments in the budget preparation, and inputting final budgets into the financial system. Budget instructions and Advisory Committee budget guidelines are communicated to the other departments. The department analyzes data and maintains statistics necessary to long range planning and helps departments monitor spending against budget during the year. The Department retains contracts, monitors contract spending and assists in the purchasing RFP processes.
