Treasurer's Office


Treasurer - John Gilpin

 

About the Office

Duties of the county treasurer include receiving, maintaining custody of, and disbursing all county monies and, as an agent of the state, issuing dog, hunting, and fishing licenses. The office pays all bills on order from the commissioners and must produce vouchers and records of transactions for the auditors at the end of each fiscal year. In counties having no controller, the treasurer must render, at least quarterly and more often if required, a statement of transactions.

Dog License

If you are a dog owner in Pike County, it is important that you license your dog. Licensing is mandated by state law and is enforced by the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture. Fines for failing to secure a license range from $25.00 to $400.00. The Pike County Treasurer's office maintains a database of licenses that are issued, which enables lost dogs to be returned to their owners more readily. This reduces costs incurred by the municipalities when the Humane Society must take possession of a lost dog.
