What Is A Town Treasurer?

The town treasurer is elected at the annual town meeting for a one-year or three-year term.  A town treasurer must be a legal voter of the municipality in which they are elected.

Although the specific roles of town treasurers vary from municipality to municipality they are mainly responsible for keeping the town’s financial accounts, investing the town’s money, maintaining a detailed record of the taxes voted.

There are numerous technical and accounting issues that the municipal treasurer must have knowledge of in order to fulfill the position.
