My first priority is to maintain the high level of service which our constituents expect, while continuing to conclude our audits with no deficiencies or discrepancies. This will be accomplished by following strict balancing procedures along with a sound system of checks and balances. Also, I will make County tax bills available through emails for those who choose to receive them in this manner. This will serve as a considerable savings in postage for Washington County. And thirdly, I will create a fund to aid sick, injured and abused animals in our county. These funds will be generated strictly through donations from our generous animal lovers and fur baby parents. Our goal is to aid in the prevention of animal abuse and neglect in our county. This will require the formation of a board of officers to oversee the distribution of these funds.
Historically, the Treasurer’s Office has effectively and efficiently operated under budget, which is set annually by the Board of Commissioners. I will ensure that the office continues to operate successfully within our set budget. We are granted the appropriate annual funds to accomplish this.
