The Finance Department strives to efficiently and effectively manage, control, and accurately report on the financial matters of the City of Lakeland. We operate under the direction and management of the City Commission and the City Manager's Office through which the needs, concerns, and desires of the citizens are ultimately expressed. 

As a support function, the Finance Department works in partnership with other City departments to develop budgets, implement control measures, and establish policies and procedures aimed at accurately accounting for, safeguarding, and maximizing the value of the City's assets.

Hurrican Irma Update for Finance: Finance offices will be closed Tuesday, 12 September 2017. Finance employees return to work at your normally scheduled times and work stations on Wednesday, 13 September 2017.
