The Shelby County Treasurer has the statutory responsibility to receive all revenue for the county, including various taxes, fees reimbursements and fines. The moneys received are properly documented in the account system and deposited into the appropriate fund accounts held at local financial institutions. In accordance with law, funds are held in interest bearing accounts and other safe investments with an emphasis on safety of principal, liquidity and maximum rate of return.
