Garfield County investments
Returns on investment
Garfield County continues to earn income on investments even in a relatively slower economy. The county is almost at goal despite some previous turbulent months and is on track to realize $2 million in interest income. The Garfield County Treasurer oversees a total portfolio, including cash, that fluctuates between $110 and $142 million (the portfolio increases as property tax is collected and distributed during the first half of each year). The County Treasurer works with an Investment Advisory Board that meets quarterly and provides investment strategy advice to the Treasurer.
