In the late summer of 2021, our Finance Department added an additional service to its portfolio by agreeing to manage the accounting and financial processes for local government and media channel NineNorth. As its name indicates, their programming covers a total of nine cities that are within close proximity to each other; one of the nine being St. Anthony Village.
The financial services package for NineNorth is similar to what our team has been providing to the Mississippi Water Management Organization (MWMO) over the past several years. The experience with the MWMO has given us the ability to replicate a similar template to fit the needs of NineNorth.
This new venture not only provides NineNorth with an efficient accounting process, but it also creates more capacity within the City’s accounting department, at no additional cost. This expansion of our existing partnership is beneficial to both parties, similarly to the benefits provided by St. Anthony’s numerous collaborative partnerships.
