History of the Office of Treasurer
In 1869, the Constitution of Virginia established the offices of Treasurer in each of the counties, cities and towns. The Treasurer is an elected official directly responsible to the citizens of the locality for the receipt and collection of the revenue, the safekeeping of revenue, and the appropriate accounting for and disbursements of the revenue.
The Treasurer is also responsible for the collection of the state funds under the Code of Virginia. The Treasurer is first and foremost a servant of the citizens, charged with the duty to provide high-quality, affordable, and efficient services for the citizens of Orange County. The Treasurer serves a four-year term at the will of the voters.
