County OKs treasurer’s request

WILMINGTON — County commissioners on Wednesday approved a Monday request from the county treasurer for part-time temporary help during the busier times of year when property taxes are collected.

Commissioners OK’d a $2,177 expenditure for the treasurer’s office for the 2020 tax collection time periods that occur in the winter and summer when first-half and second-half tax payments are due.

Clinton County Treasurer Jason F. Walt on Monday said adding a part-time person during the busy collection times would enable the treasurer’s office to better serve citizens, in addition to helping the workloads of staff.
