- City Corporation Account - Commonly referred to as the General Fund, this account is the main bank account for the city. You will see money transfers from other accounts into this account, including the Criminal Investigation Account. Example: When the Police Chief orders new police cars, the money comes from their Criminal Investigation Account, but the City writes the check.The money is transferred into the City Corporation Account from the Criminal Investigation Account. Yes, this is the correct procedure and yes it is legal according to laws, Statutes, and the State Board of Accounts. Not all bank accounts have checkbooks. Very few do.
- City Court - This is the City Court account. It derives its income from violations of the law. No payroll, health insurance, taxes, etc., are paid out of this account. The city does not manage this account. The City Court does. The city cannot use this money.
