The mission of the Treasurer is to properly receive and perform the accounting of all monies due the County and to keep records of all disbursements from the County treasury.
A complete ledger system of receipts and disbursements has been set up and computerized to keep a daily balance of over ninety accounts. The computerization of tax records has been incorporated into the data processing system, which includes a record-keeping system whereby all checks are electronically scanned, filed and available for viewing on visual archive.
To ensure accountability, the Treasurer’s Office goes through three (3) separate external audits performed each year. These audits are conducted on Liquid Fuels, the Treasurer’s Office and the Commonwealth (meaning all licenses and permits issued by the Treasurer’s Office). These audits are all conducted by the State of Pennsylvania. Results of the audits are available from the County’s Board of Commissioners Office, the Controller’s Office or the Treasurer’s Office.
