The Department is mandated to ensure that there is efficient management of Council assets on behalf of KCC and Kitwe residents in order to maximise return from use of the said assets to sustain the provision of services. The overall responsibility is to source and collect revenue; prepare books of account in terms of management accounts and audited financial statements; prepare Council budgets and undertake performance management through budgetary control to ascertain value for money; administer the employee pay-roll and carry out an update of the valuation roll. The Department presently has a total of 110 members of staff.
It is expected that the stated objectives, coupled with the City’s strengths and opportunities will provide valuable guidance to the achievement of growth in all aspects of the local economy.
