Deputy Treasurer, Keego Harbor

Published Jan 24, 2019

The City of Keego Harbor, Michigan is seeking applicants for the position of Deputy Treasurer.

The City of Keego Harbor has a population of 3,000 residents and is located in suburban Oakland County. Keego Harbor is a lake community, including Cass Lake, the largest lake in Oakland County. The area is renowned for its water recreation resources.

The ideal candidate will possess strong administrative, treasury and finance skills. While the deputy treasurer will report directly to the city manager/treasurer, he or she must be able to work collaboratively with the City Council, the City's leadership team, community stakeholders, members of the municipal staff as well as vendors that provide services to Keego Harbor.

It would be beneficial if the candidate has documented municipal experience and a history of working in city finance and treasury roles - but municipal experience is not required. Most importantly, the City is seeking a deputy treasurer that will provide effective fiscal and budget oversight and have strong organization and administrative skills. The candidate will be expected to:

  • Complete the daily balancing and reporting of funds gathered by the City for taxes, building invoices, miscellaneous receivable invoices, and other miscellaneous bills
