ACCOUNTING DEPARTMENT


The essential functions of the Town Accountant and the office staff include but are not limited to maintaining a complete set of financial records for all Town accounts, appropriations, debts and contracts.  Maintain a general ledger and journal for the recording of all transactions and subsidiary ledgers. Perform internal audits of all Town Departments on a quarterly basis. We also prepare the Town’s annual Budget Documents for Annual Town Meeting.

Monitor expenditures of all Town and School funds; examine all vouchers, department bills and payrolls for appropriateness of expenditure and for accuracy of available funds before payment.  Manage and process payroll and accounts payable for both Town and School, produce W-2’s and 1099’s for all employees and vendors.
