The Financial Management department reports directly to the elected Clerk, and is responsible for the management of the Township's accounting system and its system of financial reporting. Financial Management is a combined accounting and computer information center.
Financial reports are used to compare actual financial results with the legally adopted budget, to assess financial condition and results of operation, to determine compliance with finance related laws, rules and regulations, and to evaluate efficiency and effectiveness. Accounting records are compiled at year-end for review by our independent accounting firm, Plante & Moran, in preparation for the annual audit.
Financial Management assists in budget monitoring, oversees the township's fixed asset program and five-year financial model, Blue Cross and Blue Shield membership collection system, Capital Project Plan, and coordinates with many other township projects.
Financial Management is responsible for bi-weekly payroll processing for approximately 700 full and part-time employees and implements all contracts including the employee benefit system. The township Board approves the bi-monthly accounts payable bill run, which is processed by our department. Responsibilities and duties also include reporting W-2's, 941's, 1099's, Police and Fire Actuarial reporting, General Fund Pension, and all other payroll deductions and distributions.
Financial Information Available to the Public
The budget reports must be available to the public prior to the public hearing for the annual budget. Most of our financial reports are available under the Freedom of Information Act.
