Trustee Budget Facts

Fee Office

  • The Trustee's Office has always been conservative.
  • It is a "fee office" meaning that it is designed by State law to operate using fees rather than Property Tax.
  • The workload of the Office has increased tremendously over the past several years, but the number of full-time employees has remained the same since 1990 and the number of part-time employees has been reduced since 2001.
  • Experienced employees, training, better technology, increased efficiency, and hard work have enabled the Office to accomplish more with fewer employees.
  • The budget for the Trustee's Office decreased 2 years in a row (2011 and 2012 budget) while the Trustee's revenues (fees) increased during that same time period.
