Finance

On this Page:

The finance department is one of the busiest departments in the administration dealing with all funding that is received and dispersed out of the yearly budget, which is passed by the Settlement members. By this method the members of the community have input into how the yearly budget is spent and a process of accountability is adhered to. With the many different accounts that are needed to operate a community any changes to the budget during the fiscal year an amendment is needed and brought to the members who approve it. All expenditures, capital, cheques, cash disbursements and wages all go through the finance in order to keep a sound financial institute.
