The City of Newberry Finance Department serves primarily to bill, collect, disburse and account for City monies. The major billing activity is centered on the City’s water, sewer, electric and garbage systems and includes the reading of all City of Newberry water, effluent, and electric meters. The major collection activity involves utility bill payments for water, sewer, electric and garbage services and the customer service duties associated with these utilities.

Major disbursements include the production of the City’s payroll for over 140 employees and the production of accounts payable checks to all vendors who furnish products and services to the City. The Finance Department also serves as the City’s bookkeeper and is responsible for ensuring budgetary compliance and for presenting the City’s Comprehensive Annual Financial Report and many other specialized reports.

The Finance Department is one of the City’s many customer service arms, serving both Newberry citizens and City of Newberry employees. All City departments feed information to and receive information from the Finance department (ex. payroll, accounts payable, financial reporting).
