The City of Fairbanks Finance Department is staffed by seven of the friendliest people in Patrick B. Cole City Hall. They perform important financial operations for the City. Vickie Croll told us that she and two other people in the department work with accounts payable, garbage billing, and accounts receivable. The financial team works hard to protect the assets of all citizens, and insure that budgets and accounts are balanced correctly. Carmen Randle, the Chief Financial Officer, noted that the Finance Department assists the other departments in creating an interconnected community. The Finance Department is one of the most valuable resources our City has and we’re truly grateful for them.
