Financial Reporting

The Finance Department is responsible for overall financial administration. It provides stewardship over the District’s financial resources and supports other Departments in the provision of quality services to the citizens of Sechelt.

The Department is more specifically involved in, and responsible for: short and long-term operational and capital financial planning, internal and external financial reporting, payroll and general accounting, administration of the District’s investment portfolio, maintenance of property records, property tax collection and related tax rate setting recommendations, administration of community grants, utility billings and payments, procurement of and payment for goods and services.

As most issues and decisions within local government have financial ramifications, the Department is intricately involved, on a daily basis, with assessing the financial impact of various alternate courses of action being considered and in supporting the District’s general decision-making and service delivery processes.
