This collection consists of miscellaneous records created by the County Treasurer or by the County Auditor.
The county treasurer was established as an elective office at the County's creation in 1850. The treasurer's duties were
to collect money due the County and to appropriately disperse funds. The treasurer also served as county tax collector some
years during the nineteenth century. In 1951, the new county charter changed the treasurer to an appointive position. The
treasurer currently is part of the County's Finance Department.
The county recorder served as county auditor until 1893, although the auditor was officially a separate office after 1860.
The auditor's duties were to examine the accounts maintained by the county treasurer. In 1958, the title of the office changed
from auditor to controller, and in 1967, the office was merged with that of the treasurer. Currently, the office is part
of the County's Finance Department.
