The County Auditor is a constitutional office holder elected by vote of the county at large for a term of four years with prohibition against serving more than two consecutive terms.
The Auditor serves as secretary of the Board of County Commissioners and has the responsibility for keeping of accounts and the issuance of warrants for the payment of claims allowed by the County Commissioners. The Auditor also serves as secretary of the County Council. She is responsible for all documents, books, records, maps, and papers deposited in his office. A few of the Auditors technical duties include: budget preparation and financial statement preparation and compliance with federal tax guidelines and programs. The office of County Auditor has evolved dramatically from a bookkeeper and part-time secretary to a financial manager whose responsibilities impact the financial well-being of county government.
