Ravalli Co. will explore option to reorganize treasurer's office


HAMILTON, Mont. - Ravalli County commissioners will explore an option to reorganize the treasurer's office.

Under the proposal, the position of chief deputy would be eliminated. The office hasn't had a chief deputy since former Treasurer JoAnne Johnson resigned last fall.

The chief deputy's job is to help oversee the entire department, which includes taxes and motor vehicles. Instead, under this proposal, there would be two supervisors, one for each department.

County commissioners will consider the proposal on April 2, when their chief legal counsel is available.
