The Trustee is the treasurer/banker of County Government. All money received by the County flows through the Trustee’s office. The three main functions of the Trustee’s office are:
-the collection of property taxes and miscellaneous revenue from other County offices, state, federal and other local governments.
-the recording of revenue collections and distribution of monies to the appropriate departments.
-the investment of County funds to generate interest income with idle cash.
Through joint efforts with the County Clerk, residents are able to pay their County property taxes at the Courthouse or at the Mall office.
