Keeping Rocklin Running
The City’s finance department is hard at work processing payments, reporting revenue, and keeping City budgets updated during the coronavirus pandemic.
“We are proud to be working for the citizens of Rocklin and are doing so in the safest manner possible to provide the best service throughout this challenging time,” Chief Financial Officer Kim Sarkovich said.
Finance processes incoming revenue, vendor and utility payments, and payroll. The department also prepares ongoing reports to local, state and federal agencies on matters including sales tax, grant funding, city budget status, and more. Additionally, the department handles the City’s mail.
The City is currently in the midst of its annual budget process, and numbers are changing rapidly due to the economic uncertainty created by the coronavirus. Staff is working to update numbers as often as needed for accurate reporting of City finances, which allows leadership to make decisions based on the best information possible.
All City employees are practicing CDC and federal guidelines to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. The finance department teams are maintaining social distancing in addition to working different office hours to keep a low number of people in the building at one time.
