Financial Advisory Board

Recommendations for grant allocations were made by the Financial Advisory Board, a City Council-appointed group of community volunteers. The board meets monthly to advise and assist the City Manager and Finance Director in the preparation of the City budget, the establishment of accounting systems for the City, the planning of expenses, the projection of revenues and the analysis of the other fiscal matters presented to the Board by the City Council.
