Finance Print Article Font Size
The Finance department is responsible for ensuring the financial health of the municipality - from long term planning of capital and operating expenditures, to collections and billing of taxes and accounts payable.

We also oversee utility billing, insurance monitoring, management of permissive tax exemptions, tax sale and audit requirements, and provincial government reporting.

The department provides financial guidance and support to all departments working within the municipality and assists to identify funding for projects and initiatives directly related to priorities identified in the Official Community Plan. Additionally, our staff provide special service management and administer the Golden Municipal Airport (CYGE) and the Golden Community Cemetery.

We also provide front counter services to the public; administrative support across all departments; information technology support; and geographic information system (GIS) services across all departments.
