Department Achievements
    • Discontinued the practice of confirming orders, eliminating over expenditures, bringing the Township into state compliance

    • Provided monthly fiscal reports to the governing body

    • Reduced the number of items advertised for tax sale—indicating an improved tax collection rate

    • Transitioned from a handwritten general ledger system to a reliable financial reporting system which allows for maintenance of all funds in the general ledger in accordance with Technical Accounting Directive # 3, a state requirement

    • Trained city personnel on appropriation processing through the requisition and purchase order system that allowed for all back data to the beginning of the year to be entered, making it possible to produce budget status reports that at a minimum reflect accurate, up-to-date information for salary, wages and other expenses in each department
