The County Treasurer is to receive and keep safely all money belonging to the County and all money directed by law to be paid to him and apply and pay it out, rendering account as required by law, pursuant to Government Code 2700. The Treasurer has been delegated the authority to invest idle funds in the Treasury Pool, which includes County, School and Special District funds in a prudent manner, maintaining safety and liquidity while earning a market rate of interest.
The County Treasury supports schools, County departments and special districts in their banking and short-term investment needs.
The Treasurer's Investment Policy is presented to the Board of Supervisors annually. A summary of the Monthly Investment Reports are available below:

Absent Heirs / Returned Items
The County Treasury interacts with the public in only two areas: Maintaining records of Absent Heirs and processing Returned Items.
Each year, residents of Stanislaus County die leaving heirs that can not be located. After 1 year, Stanislaus County must turn that money over to the State of California.

When a department has deposited a check or money order, which is subsequently returned by the financial institution, that item may be handled by either the depositing department or the County Treasury. When it is handled by the Treasury, we will send a certified letter notifying you of the returned item. There is a $20 processing fee to cover the bank, postage and handling fees. We will accept payment for returned items with cash or a money order. We will not accept a check to redeem a returned check.
