Duties of the Clerk-Treasurer

The Clerk-Treasurer’s Office is one of the most important and often times overlooked functions of local government. While the town council adopts laws and establishes rates, the Clerk-Treasurer and staff are responsible for numerous daily tasks such as; managing the utility accounts and billing processes, generating payroll for town employees, overseeing the employee benefit programs, all accounts payable and receivable duties, preparing budgets, balancing bank statements, investing funds, issuing dog licenses and various permits, and a constant source of information. The Clerk-Treasurer is the fiscal officer, the keeper of town records and town seal, the clerk to the town council, and serves as the ordinance violations bureau to collect fines. This Office is multitasking, ever changing, and always ready to embrace the next challenge. Staff and I have worked tirelessly to modernize the Clerk-Treasurer’s Office with better accounting software, more payment options for serving our utility customers, and finding ways to save money for the taxpayers. Your feedback is always appreciated. Let us know how we’re doing by sending us an email, a phone call, or stopping by to visit.

About the Clerk-Treasurer
I am a lifelong resident of Cedar Lake, and a graduate of Hanover Central. After working over 7 years in the printing and graphics field, another opportunity arrived; to serve the people of Cedar Lake. I began working full time in the Clerk-Treasurer’s Office as an accounts payable clerk, assisting with bookkeeping tasks including budgets and payroll, and was eventually appointed Chief Deputy Clerk in October 2005. Nearly 10 years of knowledge and experience lead to my decision to run for this office to become your Clerk-Treasurer on January 1, 2008. As laws change frequently, the Clerk-Treasurer’s Office participates in continuing education through membership in the Indiana League of Municipal Clerks and Treasurers (ILMCT), and the International Institute of Municipal Clerks (IIMC). Accomplishments consist of being awarded the Master Municipal Clerk designation by the IIMC, and the most recent Certified Public Manager certification from the Ball State University, Bowen Center for Public Affairs. I would like to acknowledge my deputies and clerks for their diligence and teamwork.
