About the County Treasurer

The Treasurer is responsible for the receipt, management, disbursement, financial reporting, bonds and investment of all monies paid to the County and serves as agent for the State of Iowa Department of Transportation and Iowa Department of Revenue and Finance.


The Treasurer compiles composite reports from individual record books to general ledgers: reviews and reconciles receipts, bills, and cash received to assure accuracy of figures to prevent discrepancies and financial loss. 


In addition, the Treasurer categorizes, indexes, files and deposits materials, forms and monies received to assure public funds are administered properly. 


The Treasurer is responsible for the proper receipt, accounting and disbursement of county funds within proper policies established by the State of Iowa, Howard County Board of Supervisors and corporate and unincorporated taxing entities for adequate financial control.
