Since 1870, the Virginia Constitution has required that the post of Treasurer be an elected office, making the local Treasurer accountable directly to the citizens. The Treasurer serves as the chief financial officer of the County, and is elected to a four year term. The Treasurer’s Office is responsible for collecting revenues in the form of taxes and fees. These revenues include:
Court, sheriff and clerk fees
Personal property taxes
Real estate taxes
State income taxes
The Treasurer also manages the investment of local funds and maintains the county’s financial records.
