The mission of the City of Springdale Finance Department is to provide
quality financial management and reporting by properly recording receipt,
payroll expenditure, and non-payroll expenditure transactions, maintaining
accurate financial records, and investing inactive funds, in accordance with
Generally Accepted Accounting Principles and City policy.
The City of Springdale Finance

and responsibilities of the department:
* The department processes and
records all receipt transactions to the applicable funds and accounts (we
