Finance Department

City of Walterboro - CustomerserviceThe City of Walterboro Finance Department is responsible for the many City functions involving money. These functions include: the receipt of funds such as taxes, license fees, service charges and other City revenues; payment of City expenses and employee payrolls; and investment of funds not yet needed.

The Finance Department engages in record keeping and reporting including a state-mandated audited annual financial report and monthly reports on City Operations designed to keep the City Council, City Manager, and Department Heads informed about the City's financial status. The Finance Department additionally assists the City Manager with the development and publication of the City's budget.

Finance provides administrative support to City departments in the process of inviting and awarding legally required bids for large City purchases.

The Finance Department is also responsible for the successful administration of various employment-related systems and programs including employee recruitment, employee development, compensation and benefits management, employee relations, and risk management. The Finance Department's activities promote the efficient and effective delivery of quality services to citizens and enhance safety within the community.

Finance OfficeThe Finance Department is also responsible for collecting all utility bills, police fines, licenses, taxes, and state shared revenue. To ease the payment process for any of these purposes, the Finance, Utility Billing, and Judicial Departments have moved to the City Hall Annex, thus creating a one-stop payment center for all of these functions. The new building features closer parking spaces for customers as well as an "express" lane with a bank style payment tube to make the process more convenient.

The Finance Department also improved the utility bill you receive by adding historical information about your account, including a return payment envelope, and adding a special message area where the City may communicate important information regarding the City.
