All divisions within Finance are under Finance Administration and the Finance Director/Comptroller, James R. Scroggins. Finance Administration is specifically responsible for general accounting, financial reporting, and payroll functions. Some activities of the Administration Division are:

  • Debt management (including issuance of bonds and debt service payments)
  • Banking services (including weekly wire transfers and investing)
  • Labor Management Healthcare Committee participation (including two representatives as voting committee members and financial information resource)
  • General accounting (including day-to-day financial transactions and various financial reports)
  • Payroll (including processing paychecks and deductions, filing payroll tax returns, and implementing changes in tax law, personnel policies and labor contracts)
  • Audit (including coordination with external auditors, internal procedures, and external tax customers, etc)

The Finance Administration Division has been instrumental in being awarded the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting for over 10 consecutive years.
