City appoints new treasurer

Monday, October 28, 2019 by Tai Moses

Austin’s Chief Financial Officer Elaine Hart has appointed Belinda Weaver as new city treasurer, in charge of the Treasury Office. Weaver has been with the city for 12 years, most recently serving as interim treasurer since April 2018 and assistant treasurer for seven years prior. According to a press release from the city, “Under her leadership, the city completed $1.4 billion of debt issuances during 2019 to support general government, Austin Energy, and Airport capital improvements. One of the city’s more complex and innovative bond transactions (funding for acquisition cost of the Nacogdoches Biomass Facility for Austin Energy) earned the Bond Buyer’s 2019 Deal of the Year for the Southwest Region and is being considered for Overall 2019 Deal of the Year. Belinda also serves as a Trustee on the Boards of the Austin Police Retirement System and Austin Firefighters’ Relief & Retirement Fund. Prior to joining the city in November 2007, she worked as an underwriter for a regional financial institution.”
