Davenport, Iowa - Scott County Auditor Roxanna Moritz announced today that her office will sponsor a special training opportunity for the Clerks and Trustees of Scott County’s thirteen (13) political townships. The special training will occur on:

Monday, January 12, 2015 - 9:30 a.m.

Board Room, first floor

Scott County Administrative Center

600 West 4th Street

Davenport, Iowa

 

The training will be conducted by Alan Vandehaar of Iowa State University Extension and Outreach. Also available to answer questions will be Scott County Auditor Roxanna Moritz, Wes Rostenbach, Accounting and Tax Manager and Richard Bauer, Elections Supervisor from the Auditor’s Office. Members of the Scott County Board of Supervisors have also been invited. In addition to the training clerks and trustees will receive a special reference manual prepared by ISU Extension and Outreach for use by township officials.

This training opportunity is the first of its kind to be offered in Scott County. “My office deals directly with township officials on a regular basis for processing their budgets, payment for maintenance of veterans’ graves, elections and other matters, so it was a natural fit for the Auditor’s Office to sponsor this event,” said Moritz. “My staff fields a lot of questions from township clerks and trustees, so we hope that this program will help answer some of those questions and aid township officials in carrying out their duties,” said Moritz.
