Biscoe Town Manager Brandon Holland is teaching an online “Municipal Government Finance” class, starting July 20, through Randolph Community College.
The course is designed to train municipal and county finance personnel in the responsibility of everyday fiscal operations. It is ideal for municipal finance officers, treasurers, clerks, purchasing agents, tax collectors, commissioners of finance, council members, other municipal officials, or individuals interested in a career in government finance. Topics of instruction include: Budgeting, Cash Management, Purchasing and Contracting, and the Annual Audit.
“Local government finance can be tricky,” Holland said. “This course is foundational for anyone who is or will be involved in finance for a municipality. You’ll learn everything from budgeting and accounting to understanding the annual audit and so much more.”
