Finance & Budget

The Financial operation of the City of Baldwin City is the responsibility of the Finance Director, who works with the City Council, City Administrator and City departments to coordinate financial services and analysis.  Key functions and services include:

  • Administration, direction, and coordination of all financial functions of the City involving financial planning, treasury management, accounting, accounts payable, and payroll.




  • The City provides several core public utilities including electricity, water, sewer, waste water and solid waste services. Electric, water and sewer utility bills are based on usage and storm water and solid waste bills are flat monthly fees. The total operational costs of these services directly impact the utility rates, which in-turn affect your monthly utility bills. There are also external influences which directly impact the cost of providing these services such as federal/state mandates, increasing cost of chemicals/goods, and infrastructure maintenance/replacement.
  • Partners with all City departments to develop strategies and deploy measurement tools to track financial and operational processes. These partnerships leverage knowledge and expertise across the City and through using a variety of analytical, statistical, and investigative techniques, the office  provides top of the line internal consulting services.
