The city’s customer service area dealt with more than $13 million in payments in the first three months of this year.
The area also issued 14,322 cash receipts and processed 8,408 electronic payments.
Council heard the first quarterly reports of the financial department at Tuesday’s council meeting.
Other highlights included the department provided operating, capital and equipment budgets to council and city administration.
The department also awarded ScotiaBank a banking services request for proposal. That will result in more than $100,000 in savings and additional revenues.
Further, the information technology area worked with the Moose Jaw Police Service to “create a new website and streamline social media processes,” the report said. The community has embraced these projects.
Other items considered at Tuesday’s council meeting:
• Council appointed Coun. Dawn Luhning as the non-voting council representative to the board of directors for the Moose Jaw Humane Society with a term expiring Oct. 26, 2016.
• Amber Tangjerd was appointed as a representative to the Moose Jaw Real Estate Board to the housing advisory committee.
• Council received and adopted the minutes of the recent meeting of the executive committee, the environment advisory committee and the heritage advisory committee.
Among those items included a request for council approval for the city to participate in the province’s multi-material stewardship western program.
As Mahabub Zaman, manager of engineering who presented the information to the environment advisory committee, was absent from Tuesday’s meeting, the matter was tabled for discussion at executive committee.
