The County Treasurer is the county’s banker. The County Treasurer, as the chief custodian of county finance, shall:
- Receive all monies belonging to the county from whatever source.
- Keep and account for all monies in a designated depository.
- Pay and apply or disburse all monies in such a manner as Commissioner’s Court may direct, by law.
All receipts of any official belonging to the county must be turned
over to the County Treasurer daily. The County Treasurer acts as the

capacity, the treasurer maintains records of all deposits and
withdrawals, and reconciles all bank statements, thus assuring accuracy
and safety of county funds.
The County Treasurer, who may be designated as the countys’
investment officer, is required to submit regular reports on county
