Treasurer’s Mission Statement: To manage and report on Sterling’s finances to the highest possible standards, creating the optimal outcome for our residents.
Job description: The Treasurer’s job is to manage and report on the Town’s finances, working with the auditors to develop our annual financial statements and using their recommendations to improve our recordkeeping system.
The goal is to, so far as feasible, maximize money in and minimize money out. Deposits are made to the most lucrative accounts allowable and payments timed so cash is kept on hand as long as possible. For occasional large projects, such as financing school construction, the Treasurer works with bankers and the First Selectman to get the best interest rate.
Reporting includes explaining aspects of our financial situation to townspeople, investors, the State, and other government agencies.
