The Finance Department
The Finance Department has implemented procedures and policies that maximize accurate accounting, prompt payment of obligations, preservation of high credit ratings, management information for decision-making, timely and meaningful financial reporting, and effective financial planning.
The Finance Department consists of six employees charged with the role of acting as a financial consulting group for the Wayne County Board of Commissioners. The Finance Department is responsible for general ledger and financial reporting, accounts payable, accounts receivable, cash and investments, debt financings, investments, insurance, banking services, contracting, purchasing, audit responsibilities, budgeting, and internal controls. Every employee of the Finance Department possesses unique potential and accepts the responsibilities of the position.
The Finance Department operates on an annual financial year, which is distinct from the calendar year. For example, the fiscal year 2012-2013 began on July 1, 2012 and ended on June 30, 2013.  Both the annual audit and annual budget are prepared based on our fiscal year dates.
