County Treasurer
The County Treasurer is the county's banker. As chief financial custodian, the treasurer:
  • Receives monies belonging to the county from all sources
  • Keeps and accounts for all monies in a designated depository
  • Pays and applies or disburses all monies in such a manner as the Commissioners' Court may direct, by law
  • Acts as chief liaison between the county and all depository banks
  • Maintains records of all deposits and withdrawals

All receipts of any official belonging to the county must be turned over to the County Treasurer daily. The County Treasurer reconciles all bank statements, thus assuring their accuracy and the safety of county funds.

The County Treasurer, who may be designated as the county's investment officer, is required to submit regular reports on county finance to the members of the Commissioners Court for inspection and verification.
