The Boston Finance Commission (known as FinComm) is an agency that monitors finances for the city of Boston. It is concerned with appropriations, loans, expenditures, accounts, and methods of administration affecting the city of Boston and Suffolk County (of which Boston is the county seat). It conducts investigations, and makes reports to the mayor, city council, and state governor, in addition to its annual January report to the state legislature.
Public meetings of the FinComm are open to observers interested in municipal government.
