The Finance Department's purpose is to provide a centralized source for handling the financial affairs of the Town including billing and collections of utility services, miscellaneous fees, purchasing of goods, services, and supplies, paying financial obligations, maintaining a financial record-keeping system, providing periodic preparation and distribution of financial statements, protecting municipal assets, utilizing investments for the Town's idle funds, and providing payroll services.
Due to health concerns associated with the coronavirus (COVID-19) and efforts to limit possible transmission, the Finance Department and Utility Billing/Collections office is temporarily closed to the public. Though the Department is closed to customers, the Department remains in operation at a reduced capacity as follows:
- Application forms may be accessed online or you may call 828-268-6220 for Utility Billing/Collections or 828-268-6210 for Finance Department. There will be messages on these lines with further contact information. We ask that you mail a copy of the form you need to submit.
- For security purposes, all payments should be mailed in or dropped off at the secure drop-of box on the side of Town Hall (567 West King Street). This drop-off box is located at the side of the building near the front. Please be sure to mark all payments with your account number or the name on the Utility account. You may also utilize online bill pay or bank draft.
- While the Finance Department and Utility Billing/Collections expect to continue to handle business as normal, please expect there to be delays during this time period.
All required forms for Finance or Utility Billing are located here. Please either mail or fax these forms. If you'd like to submit these forms in-person, please visit Town Hall at 567 West King Street located in Downtown Boone.
