The Finance and Technology Department is responsible for the reporting and recording of the financial information for the Town of Stratford and its entities as well as for the development and oversight of annual budgets. The Finance and Technology Department is also responsible for the preparation of the annual financial statements for the Town and its entities. The Town of Stratford follows public sector accounting standards and one of these requirements was that all municipalities prepare consolidated financial statements as of the year ending December 31, 2008. As of December 31, 2007 the Town of Stratford has consolidated their statements. The consolidated statements include financial information for The Town of Stratford, Stratford Utility Corporation and the Stratford Business Park.

The Finance and Technology Department also acts as the first contact site of information for our residents through our dedicated Front Desk Receptionist/Administrative Clerk and our Utility Payment/Administration Clerk. The Finance and Technology department issues the water and sewer bills and can answer any questions regarding the financial component of our resident’s bills.
