The county auditor is a constitutional officeholder elected by voters of the county at large for a term of four years with the prohibition against serving more than two consecutive terms. The auditor serves as secretary of the Board of County Commissioners and secretary of the county council. A few technical duties include budget preparation, financial statement preparation, and compliance with federal tax guidelines and programs. The office of county auditor has evolved dramatically from a bookkeeper and part-time secretary to a financial manager whose responsibilities impact the financial well-being of county government.
