The functions of the Finance Department of the City of Pineville include accounts payable, accounts receivable, yearly budget preparation and monitoring, overseeing all departmental budgets, grant administration, accounting of fixed assets, and preparation of bank reconciliation and the general accounting for all city funds.


As required by governmental accounting standards, the City's accounts are organized into self-contained funds.  Monthly activities in these funds are reconciled each month.  Fund accounting is a method of accounting that groups cash and other financial resources together with related liabilities and residual equities or balances and any changes therein by their purpose.  Each group of accounts is designed to carry on a specific activity or set of activities or to attain certain objectives in accordance with special regulations, restrictions, or limitations.


An annual independent audit of the City's financial statements is required and performed each fiscal year.  After performing a review of the financial statements of the City, this procedure results in an independent opinion on whether or not those financial statements are relevant, accurate, complete, and fairly presented. 


We strive to continue the public's trust and confidence through innovative and responsible financial management systems that ensures efficient and effective services responsive to the needs of our citizens in accordance with the recognized principles of governmental accounting standards.
