 Job Description
  The Finance Director will be in a unique position to guide the development of the recently created Finance Department. The finance function was previously part of the Administrative Services Department. When the Administrative Services director was promoted to Assistant City Manager, a recruitment campaign failed to fill the vacant position. The City Manager then made a strategic recommendation to Council in January 2017 to split the department into two, creating the City’s first Finance and Human Resources/Risk Management departments.
The department is currently under the leadership of a long-time staff member who is retiring. Before being promoted to Acting Finance Director when the department was formed, he served as the Assistant Director of Administrative Services for many years.
To ensure a smooth leadership transition, the new Finance Director will have the rare opportunity to have a transitional period working alongside the Acting Director to learn the City’s structure, services and culture. The City also recently approved a contract with Tyler Technologies to convert the City’s financial/human resources ERP to MUNIS. The new Finance Director will have the advantage of being involved with implementation of the new ERP from the beginning of the project.
