Purchasing is a division of the City's Finance Department. We strive to provide our departments with the resources needed to perform their jobs while maximizing the purchasing value of public funds by acquiring quality materials and services in a timely and cost effective manner, all while maintaining an open, fair and competitive bidding environment.

No purchase $5,000 or more shall be made without a properly authorized purchase order.

The Purchasing division ensures that all City policies and procedures are followed by issuing and maintaining all purchase orders, assisting with formal solicitations and meeting with vendors.
