TREASURER'S RESPONSE TO PAST AUDIT FINDINGS


Dog License Information and Pricing



I would like to welcome you to the Lawrence County Treasurerís office web site.

My name is Richard L. Rapone, and it is with much pride and enthusiasm that I serve you as Lawrence Countyís Treasurer.  Now, in my second term I recognize how vital it is to have earned the trust and faith of the taxpayers of Lawrence County. I am very appreciative that my platforms have been embraced and how the taxpayers have entrusted me to represent   them   in this county seat. As your financial steward, I take this immense role  very seriously and I am very much committed to providing you with fiscal responsibility and pledge that my staff and I  will always deliver cordial, honorable, ethical, accountable, and professional business services to youÖĒour supervisors.Ē

Because I firmly believe that your County Treasurerís office should be operated like the business it is, currently and going forward you will see and hear about my staff and I implementing new programs and procedures that will enhance and create a  more efficient  environment which will enable us to deliver superior customer service directly to you.

Although the office of County Treasurer may be familiar to most county residents, to better serve you I feel it is important that you understand exactly what the Treasurerís duties are. The county treasurer is a four year elected position and is the chief tax collector for the county assessed real estate tax. Approximately $20M representing approximately 51,000 parcels is collected through my office. This real estate tax is the main source of revenue for county government. One of the innovative programs which I created when I was elected in 2008 was the County Tax Outreach Program. I personally visit twenty three districts throughout the county permitting tax payers to satisfy their county taxes in their own communities. Through this program I felt I could give back to the taxpayers by helping them economically by traveling around the county. This marked a milestone of innovation in tax collecting as the program has grown from its pioneer year of collecting approximately $11,000 to collecting over $517,000 in tax year 2013.

The county treasurerís office is also accountable for receipting and depositing all pass through monies received through the county, which quantifies to approximately $95M

The treasurerís office also serves as an Agent to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania issuing dog, fishing, hunting and doe licenses. The treasurerís office also issues bingo and small games of chance licenses and is responsible for the collection of the 3% Hotel tax as well. Our office is also responsible for reconciling of the counties bank accounts.

During my tenure a program was created to accommodate those who serve jury duty that the checks that are issued to them by the courts can be cashed here at the treasurerís office when their duty is complete. This is a time saving course for the responsible citizens of Lawrence County performing their civic duty.

Another very important function of your county treasurer is to serve on the County Employees Retirement Board with the County Commissioners and County Controller. The purpose of this retirement board is to invest member contributions in a fiscally prudent manner so when employees retire they will have a steady source of income.

So as you can see, your county treasurerís office is quite multi functional.  Abiding by the PAís  5th class county code, Purdonís Pennsylvania Statues of Taxation and Fiscal Affairs and the Oath of Office that I have been sworn to rest assured your county treasurerís office is honorable, ethical and accountable in every facet of responsibility.

In closing, I am very proud to offer you an extremely professional, dedicated and experienced team; I have put in place to help me manage the financial and departmental affairs of the county treasurerís office. I welcome you to meet my staff while youíre visiting our web site.

In closing as your elected County Treasurer, my goal is to continue to provide you with excellent customer service and a friendly and professional place to do business with! We take pride in our commitment to you and welcome your comments and suggestions as well.

Please know that my door is always open to help you in any way the county treasurerís office may ,and I would cordially like to invite you to visit me here in the county treasurerís office at the Lawrence County Government Center, I look forward to meeting YOU! Please always know that you have in place a county treasurerís team that is working for you.

Respectfully yours,

Richard L. Rapone

Lawrence County Treasurer
