Report
BACKGROUND
Disbursements made by the City are based on invoices submitted for payment. Prior to payment, staff reviews all disbursement documents to ensure they are reflective of the goods or services provided. Invoices are usually paid within 30 days of receipt of an accurate invoice. As the final step, the City Auditor, or her designee verifies all documents before payment is issued. Payments are issued through accounts payable checks and wire transfers.

The Bills and Claims Report represents the cash disbursements required for operations of the City during the period.
