The office of the County Treasurer was established by the Michigan State Constitution (Article VII, Secton 4).
The four-year term of office is filled by partisan election. The duties and powers of the County Treasurer are provided by state law and by authorization of the county Board of Commissioners.
The two main roles of the treasurer are to be the custodian of all county funds, and the collector of delinquent property taxes, both real and personal.
Additionally, the treasurer fulfills many other duties. The office is responsible for accounting for all revenue coming to the county. This includes revenue from the collection of delinquent property taxes; interest from the investment of idle funds in securities and monies held in financial institutions; reconveyance of property; certification of deeds, plat maps and other documents pertaining to tax histories and litigations; and selling dog licenses.
Some also serve as Treasurer and/or member of Building Authorities, Parks and Recreation Commissions, Library Boards, Local Development Companies, Economic Development Corporations, Retirement Commissions, Transportation Authorities, Airport Commissions, Planning Boards, Deferred Compensation Boards, Drainage Boards, and appointed Administrative Agents for Tax Administration Funds.
The functions of this office are dictated by state statutes, under the guidance of the Bureau of Local Government Services Audit Division and the State Treasury Department.
