Gloucester County has budgeted $600 in fiscal year 2017 for the commissioner of accounts.
According to Stephanie Tinsley, Gloucester's director of financial services, commissioner of accounts are appointed by Gloucester County Circuit Court. They oversee the handling of the estates of decedents, minors and incapacitated adults. The commissioners also approve final accounting of foreclosures.
Tinsley said substantial correspondence with the parties is required, and the county provides a budget to cover postage for this correspondence.
Gloucester budgeted $600 for the commissioners in FY15 and FY16.
