History of The Controller’s Office

The Controller’s Office was established by an Act of Legislation on September 5, 1931. These individuals, our past and present County Controllers, developed and maintained a strict system of internal controls that ensures that neglect, fraud, waste and abuse do not occur in our local Government.
