The auditor also is custodian for the courthouse, which involves general maintenance and repair of the building and solving issues regarding office space and records storage. We file all reports required by the Census Bureau, OSHA, Federal and State quarterly reports, financial reports and budget reports, just to name a few. We handle all the payroll and health related issues for the county, drainage questions and assessments, all claims for payment are processed here, all budget related paperwork and forms for the county, we accept and file all school, city, townships, ag extension, hospital, emergency management, Assessor, and E911 budgets and prepare the tax list showing the tax askings.
