Institutionele geschiedenis

A Finance Committee was established in 1892 and consisted of three Aldermen, who acquired the financial services of a Town Treasurer. The Town Treasurer reported to the Finance Committee of Town Council, which had ultimate control over the public purse. The Town Treasurer was responsible for providing financial advice for the efficient management and accountability of public funds. All financial transactions were recorded in the Town Treasurer's Ledger. In 1898 the Office of the Treasurer became the Office of the Secretary-Treasurer.
