Finance & Investments
Between the time property taxes are collected and go into active use for the provision of services, the Treasurer's Office invests the funds. This is to make the best use of tax dollars maximizing how far they go. The Treasurer's Office invests funds to earn a competitive rate of return while ensuring tax dollars are protected and that the county's investments are liquid (or accessible) for the county's expected cash needs.
The county utilizes a number of different securities to meet its investment objectives. Those securities are prescribed by Ohio law. No securities purchased by the Treasurer have a maximum final maturity of more than 5 years from the date of purchase unless specifically authorized by a unanimous vote of the Investment Advisory Committee. This ensures ready access to county funds as they are needed. Securities may be sold or redeemed prior to maturity to enhance the return on the investment, to restructure the portfolio, to diversify, or as cash needs warrant.
Quarterly Investment Reports
Each quarter, the Investment Advisory Committee meets to review the county's investments and policies. This meeting includes a review of overall economic indicators, a discussion of necessary adjustments and changes in the county's investment portfolio to account for those indicators, and a review of the county's investments over time. Reports will be updated as they are available.
Investment Advisory Committee
The investment activities of the Treasurer's Office are monitored and overseen by the Investment Advisory Committee (IAC). This group meets on a quarterly basis to review the county's investments and policies. Previous IAC meeting agenda and minutes can be found here.
