Financial Services

Who We Are

The Finance division manages all of the City's finances, including the big things like our treasury and debt management. We also handle transactions like accounts payable, payroll, licensing and cashiering, risk management, financial reporting and information technology.

Our goal is to manage a balanced budget with reserves so the City can deal and respond to uncertainties in the local economy, while at the same time maintain our high quality services to the community.

We value openness and transparency, so we invite you to view our financial data at unioncity.opengov.com or you can visit the Transparency Portal on this website where you will find our biennial budget and other financial reports.  

City Budget

The City Council adopts a biennial city budget and a five year capital improvement plan to ensure for optimal maintenance and efficiency of city services.  You can find the current budget and an archive of past budgets in our Transparency Portal
