The Finance Department is responsible for the fiscal management of the City of Stayton. The primary responsibility of the department is to protect and enhance the fiscal integrity of the City. We strive to provide quality customer service to our customers, which include the general public and other City departments. Our tasks include accounts payable, accounts receivable, utility billing, general accounting and payroll. The department also assists in development and administration of the City’s budget and the annual financial audit.
No service that the City provides to its community may be more crucial than the integrity and stewardship of public funds. Clear and transparent fiscal guidelines are critical. The City should constantly strive to be transparent, honest and fair in receiving, managing and spending public funds. Our integrity should be beyond reproach.
