General Information:

The purpose of the Finance Department is to have Wasco's County's finances be accurate, reliable and sound. We strive to be good stewards of public funds by ensuring that financial transactions are well managed, recorded properly and in legal compliance. In addition, we provide finance assistance, analyses and advice to both internal and external customers.

Finance is the County's newest department, being formed in 2004. Previously, all budget and accounting functions were done in the Clerk's office. Instead of abruptly transferring all finance duties with the creation of the department, a gradual transition over time was planned. The first transition was payroll, which transferred in 2004. General Ledger and system administration transferred in 2006 with the implementation of a new financial software system. Budget duties transferred in 2008.

The Finance Department also houses the County Treasurer, an elected official.
