  • PAYMENT AND PROCESSING OF BILLS:

    Liberty County processes and makes payments in accordance with state statues.

    Individual departments submit bills to be paid to the Auditor's office. After verifying information and funds, bills are then entered to be paid on the next check run. Checks are cut after Commissioners' Court approval and are sent to the Treasurer's Office for final signatures and mailing.

    All bills to be paid are due by 5pm the Monday of the week prior to Commissioners' Court.
    If you have any questions regarding any payment we encourage that the department submitting the payment is contacted first to verify submission prior to contacting Accounts Payable.

    Attorneys: All attorney fee vouchers are subject to the same cut-off time as regular bill payments. Please verify that your voucher is completely filled out, signed AND certified by the correct clerk's office prior to submitting to the Auditor's Office. If you are a new appointed attorney you will need to be set up in our system prior to payments being issued. Please fill out and submit the New Vendor Application and the IRS Form W9 to our office prior to submitting any vouchers.

  • Transparency in financial planning is achieved through the annual budget process. While the County Judge is the official budget officer for the county, the Auditor's office plays an important role by ensuring compliance with the current budget and assisting with estimating expenditures for the new year. Budget workshops are held starting in the spring to discuss the various departments needs for spending. A detailed, county-wide budget is composed and then posted for review by the Commissioners, the county departments, and the public. Finally, in a formal meeting of the Commissioners Court the budget is adopted.

     

    Listed below is the current county budget along with prior years budgets.
