SERVICES - REVENUE COLLECTION  

The revenue receipting section is comprised of two areas: Cashiering and Debt Collection (DC).  The cashiering area is responsible to account for the receipt all funds that come in daily.  The funds may be receipted by various government departments, but the ACG cashiers must ensure that all monies received are deposited and recorded in the centralized system.  The ACG cashiers also collect monies from the general public for certain taxes and fees.

The Debt Collection area is responsible to collect past due debts that various departments are unable to collect.  The Debt Collection Officers work with the public to develop payment arrangements and if all efforts are exhausted, the debt will be referred to Magistrate's Court and a judgment placed on the debtor.  We also work with the local banks and other collection agencies to inform them of persons who apply for loans who are past due on accounts with the Government.
