Per Arizona Revised Statutes, Section 41-1279.07(E), the City is required to designate a Chief Fiscal Officer annually for expenditure limitation reporting, as follows: "The governing body of each political subdivision shall provide to the auditor general by July 31 each year the name of the chief fiscal officer designated by the governing body of the political subdivision to officially submit the current fiscal year's expenditure limitation report on behalf of the governing body. The governing body of the political subdivision shall notify the auditor general of any changes of individuals designated to file the required reports. The designated chief fiscal officer shall certify to the accuracy of the annual expenditure limitation report."

The Flagstaff City Charter Article IV, Section 3 provides for the appointment of a City Treasurer with approval of the Council. The City Treasurer "shall receive and have custody of all the money of the City" and manage it in compliance with applicable laws and ordinances. 

The City Treasurer's responsibilities encompass those duties required of a Chief Fiscal Officer, per the law stated above.

On September 15, 2015, Rick Tadder was appointed the City Treasurer by Resolution No. 2015-32. 

Therefore, designating Rick Tadder as the Chief Fiscal Officer is appropriate.
