Shaun L. Farrell
The City Treasurer is an office within all general law cities and almost without exception in chartered cities in California. The legal consequences which flow from this status as a “public officer” carry important official and personal responsibilities. The duties of this vital position are set forth in statues. Sections 41001 through 41005 of the Government Code set forth the primary statutory duties of general law city treasurers.
These duties are: To receive and safely keep all money coming into the Treasury (Gov. Code Section 41101); to comply with all laws governing the depositing and securing of public funds (Gov. Code Section 41002); to pay money only on warrants signed by legally designated persons (Gov. Code 41003); and submit a monthly written report and accounting of receipts, perform any duty, transaction, etc. as deemed necessary by the City Council. The City Treasurer also serves in the capacity of treasurer for the City’s Redevelopment Agency, Galt Middle School Joint Powers Authority, City of Galt Public Financing Authority and the City Capital Improvements authority.
