The Office of County Treasurer was created by the ND Constitution and the duties are listed in the ND Century Code. Treasurers are elected to four-year terms on a non-partisan ballot during November elections. They officially assume duties the first Monday of May next succeeding the election.
Treasurers receive all money coming into the county. The principal source of revenue is real estate taxes. They apportion, or give each county fund or government entity its portion on a monthly basis. They provide information to taxpayers, state agencies, lending institutions, mortgage agencies and realty companies. They make the best use of county funds by investing to receive the best rate of return. They also collect fees and fines for all county offices; mobile homes taxes, and are custodians of special funds. Bottineau County is audited annually for accuracy and legality by the ND State Auditor’s Office.
Your county treasurer is here to serve you, the taxpayer, and answer any questions you may have. Don’t hesitate to stop by or call and get to know your elected official.
