The trustee acts as the general banker for the county, serving three primary functions:
Collecting property taxes
Receiving and disbursing county funds
Managing the county's cash flow
Property taxes are one of the county's most important revenue sources. The trustee sends out property tax statements in October and collects and issues receipts prior to the February deadline. He authorizes a uniform chart of county accounts administered by the county audit division, deposits funds daily and makes disbursements on official county warrants.
Monthly & Annual Financial Statements
The trustee issues monthly and annual financial statements. He is also charged with investing idle funds and working with the County Budget Committee to ensure investments are made according to state law and produce maximum earnings with the highest degree of safety.
