Last week, I gave a rundown on city departments and I said that I would profile different departments over the next few weeks.
I made a bit of an error when I gave the list. I mentioned the Finance Department. It’s not called that anymore. It is now known as the Business Services Department.
The name change isn’t cosmetic. The department is a newly organized entity that took over the functions of the old Finance and Procurement departments. Human Resources has to remain separate by provisions of the charter, but they are considered under the Business Services “umbrella.”
