The Village is committed to providing high-quality services to its residents in an economical and effective manner. To accomplish this, the Village seeks to utilize proven tools and methods in its operations. The Village's financial system is a key component in realizing these goals. The financial system supports the Village's policy makers, managers, and all personnel with accurate, timely, and detailed information. The financial system provides users with reliable, efficient, consistent, and intuitive tools. Finally, the financial system is a participant in the larger system of Village operations.
