County Auditor

The Auditor is responsible for acting on behalf of the County Legislature in performing the audit of all bills and charges made against County departments. The Auditor determines the legality of all claims, insures that claims are properly made and that funds are available in department accounts to cover the claim. Since the Auditor is performing a responsibility of the County Legislature under the County Law, appointment to the position is made directly by the Legislature, for a two-year term coinciding with the term of the Legislature.
