The Treasurer is elected by the People of Will County and commissioned by the Governor to be the county’s Chief Financial Officer. The Treasurer, with the assistance of his professional staff, receives tax revenue and other public money, safely keeps those funds, and disburses that money pursuant to the law.
Simply put, the Treasurer is responsible for the safety and security of county tax dollars—now and in the future.
We do this in a variety of ways.
- Manage the cash flow of all major county accounts with deposits, withdrawals, and transfers totaling nearly $750-million in 2012.
- Invest the county’s operating cash in short-term, interest-bearing accounts that preserve our ability to access the funds.
- Issue and manage all of the county’s debt with bond sales that finance major projects.
In addition, the Treasurer provides guidance for the management of long-term debt and investments with the assistance of the Will County Board’s Finance Committee.
Annual Report to the County Board
The Treasurer produces an annual report to the County Board describing the amount of money, county orders, jury certificates, and other funds the office received during the year. This report is available for public inspection at the Treasurer’s office as well as online.
Monthly Report of Financial Status
Similar to the Annual Report, the Treasurer files a monthly report with the County Clerk and County Executive summarizing the financial status of the office. This report also is available for public inspection at the Treasurer’s office or online.
