Whew! After the April 2020 election, your Board of Trustees and I have been busy with work sessions, Board of Trustee meetings and most importantly, in-depth discussions with your Town of Frederick staff. As your elected officials, we rely on our talented Town staff's expertise to run daily operations (too many to mention!) and help us see our community resources' full potential. The more I get to know everyone, the more excited I become about our vision to build a safe, inviting and culturally vibrant place to live and work. As we wrap up our work on the 2021 budget this month, I thought it appropriate to spotlight our Finance Department team.
Utility Billing Clerk, Nancy, works to collect and process all water, stormwater, and trash collection payments. She is crucial and maintains all utility billing accounts, rate structures, processes utility bills and shut off notices. Nancy is a Frederick resident and has been a part of the Frederick Team for six years.
Lori is the Receptionist for Finance, but also the first face you see when visiting Town Hall. Her stellar customer service is key to providing residents with answers to their variety of questions. She assists with building permits, business licenses, supply orders and administrative needs for all departments. She is a resident of the Carbon Valley (Firestone) and has been a team member for five years.
Finance Clerk, Shauntina, oversees Accounts Payable and Accounts Receivable, along with Cash receipting. She is vital in our day-to-day activities to provide accurate tracking of revenues and expenses to the budget. Shauntina is also a Frederick resident and has been an employee for the past eight years.
Anthony is our Accountant and joined the team in March of 2020. He processes many of the Town's accounting services, from bank reconciliation, capital asset tracking, and financial statements, to name a few. His commitment to the Town of Frederick goes back to his years at FHS, representing the Town's Youth Commission.
The Finance team is excited to have new employee Kurtis Adams start in Early November. He will help lead the department as the Finance Manager and oversee the budget process, annual audit, debt and investment management. This position also supports the Frederick Urban Renewal Authority and Frederick Metropolitan District. Kurtis is also a Frederick resident and is passionate about providing service to the community he has made home.
Have you ever worked on a project where you had no say in the outcome? Here, everybody matters, including you! As your Mayor, it is my role to represent your ideas and dreams. It is great to know we have a talented Finance team who will provide accurate details so that your representatives on the Board can prioritize projects effectively for our community's greater good. Frederick has a bright future with big plans!
Town of Frederick Mayor, Tracie Crites
