The Finance Department can be classified as the "watch dog" of Lake City’s financial affairs in order to provide professional financial services as mandated by law, required by mayor and council, and those in other governmental units. This responsibility enables the city to estimate revenues, collect charges and fees, and aid in monitoring expenditures.
Finance continuously assists all departments by providing quality and timely financial data. This allows better allocation of limited resources and helps departments maximize the services they can provide to taxpayers and the public at large and allows for prudent budget decisions that benefit future generations of Lake City through long-term fiscal health.
We’ll be featuring full audits and documents related to Lake City’s financial department, but if you’d like to speak to someone at the City regarding the town’s finances, please call 843-374-5421.
