The Treasurer is the Chief Financial Officer for the locality, collecting taxes and local fees, and making payments on behalf of the local government.  The Treasurer is responsible for every form of revenue, be it local, state or federal, that comes to the locality.
 
The primary functions of a county treasurer can be grouped into three major categories:

  • receipt and collection of revenue
  • safekeeping of the revenue
  • appropriate accounting for and disbursement of revenue

The Treasurer is one of five locally elected Constitutional Officers.  The elected post of Treasurer was created in the Virginia Constitution of 1870.  The Treasurer's independent status as an elected official ensures that local funds will be collected, invested, and spent by an officer who reports directly to the people.
