The Office of the Treasurer and Collector of Taxes consists of five divisions headed by the Treasurer/Collector of Taxes. The five divisions are: Treasury, Collector, Payroll, Parking Clerk, and service support divisions.
The Town Treasurer and Collector of Taxes is responsible for managing and directing the tax collection process, and for planning, coordinating and directing the Town's financial policies. The Treasurer serves as Custodian of Funds for all Town monies. Cash management, investment management, and debt management, are among the Treasurer’s responsibilities. The Treasurer performs his fiduciary responsibility by developing investment and borrowing strategies based on financial best practices, consultation with financial advisors and investment institutions, participation in government finance officer’s seminars and conferences, ongoing review of financial and investment journals and periodicals, and working on the certification process for both Treasurer and Collector of Taxes through the Massachusetts Collectors & Treasurers Association and the national Government Finance Officers Association.
