The Finance Department coordinates the annual financial planning and budget processes, maintains all city accounts and financial records, prepares for the annual audit, manages payroll and purchasing, and collects Sublimity's building permit fees. It is also responsible for various technical areas of the city including computer systems, telephone and internet facilities for all city departments. As Office Manager, this position handles the day-to-day operations of City Hall and is the assistant to the Mayor and assigned department council liaisons. The department strives to provide a high level of customer service to the citizens of Sublimity and other city departments.

The budget plays a critical role in the continuing operations of the city. Each year the budget committee and the city council convened to authorize the funds that may be expended from July 1 through June 30 of the following year. The budget documents on this page are the culmination of their hard work and input from the community.

After June 30, the city’s financial records and internal processes are reviewed by an independent auditing firm. The resulting report is then generated by the firm to aid in communicating the fiscal status of the city. Audited financial statements will be available on or after December 31 following the close of the fiscal year.
