    The duties of the County Auditor: 
    By statute, the Auditor serves as the county’s fiscal officer. As such, the Auditor works closely with all other departments and county offices. This places a heavy duty of fiscal responsibilities onto the office of Auditor. This includes being responsible for documenting all financial activity in over 200 various funds and drain maintenance ledgers and reporting this activity yearly into the State’s Gateway System. The Auditor is to keep accurate account for all appropriations made by County Council, issue warrants and certify claims. In addition to Accounts Payable, all Accounts Receivable and Payroll is processed through the Auditor’s office, including benefits administration and deduction withholding. The Auditor’s staff and Treasurer’s office maintain separate accounting records to ensure proper use of public funds.

    In addition to being the fiscal officer, the Auditor is also responsible for the preparation, preservation, alteration and maintenance of the tax duplicate. The office processes all property tax deductions and maintains ownership records. The Auditor calculates the property tax statements for real property, personal property and mobile home, including the administration of tax abatements and Tax Incremental Financing (TIF) areas.

    Finally, the Auditor serves as the Secretary to the County Council, the Treasurer for the Redevelopment Commission and the Jail Building Facility Corporation, and the Controller for the Solid Waste Management District.
