The Finance Department is responsible for all monetary transactions and reporting. This includes check disbursements, payroll, utility billing, and tax receipts. The Finance Department personnel also files all county, state and federal finance reports; reconciles all account activity; and analyzes revenue and spending trends to provide the most accurate financial position of the Town.
The approved Annual Budget is the basis of all monetary decisions made throughout the year and is the guideline for the Town Staff. All revenue and spending is tracked and compared with the budget. A monthly financial statement is compiled and submitted to the Board of Trustees for approval. Berthoud At-A-Glance is a summary of the monthly finance activity in an easy to read format, but the Financial Statement is much more comprehensive. The Bills Allowed Report is simply a list of checks disbursed on a monthly basis, providing payee and check amount information. All of these reports can be found by clicking on the links above or on the appropriate tabs to the left.
