The City Treasurer strives to ensure timely billing and collection of taxes and fees, and forwards taxes collected on behalf of other taxing jurisdictions to them twice a month as required by law.  Receipt of all payments are deposited daily and then invested in a prudent manner governed by Public Act 20 and the City Investment Policy.  Our goal is to maximize the financial resources to meet the needs of the City and its Citizenry by careful planning and investment.
