County Treasurer No Longer Ex Officio District Treasurer
Under current law, county treasurers are ex officio district treasurers for drainage districts, irrigation districts, and internal improvement districts that provide services related to drainage and ditches (collectively, district). The bill removes the duty of the county treasurer to be ex officio district treasurer and provides that district treasurers are appointed by the board of directors of the district. The bill also clarifies that duties of the county treasurer as ex officio district treasurer are solely duties of the district treasurer. Additionally, the bill clarifies that irrigation district
taxes assessments and internal improvement district taxes assessments are distributed in alignment with current law for the distribution of taxes assessments collected by county treasurers and updates the amount of fees a county treasurer can charge and receive for collecting district assessments to 0.25% upon all money collected by the county treasurer for assessments beginning on and after January 1, 2026 .
