Ravalli Co. Treasurer on leave demands role in reorganization


HAMILTON, Mont - At a meeting this morning, appointed Ravalli County Treasurer Valerie Stamey demanded a role in the reorganization of her office.

Stamey is on paid administrative leave pending an investigation into whether she did her job. She is under fire for not balancing the county's books, paying its bills or depositing its money.

Ravalli County commissioners are discussing reorganizing the treasurer's office.

The proposal calls for eliminating the chief deputy position that oversees both taxes and the DMV and replacing that job with two supervisors. One would oversee the DMV and the other taxes.

Stamey told commissioners she is still the head of the office and all changes need to go through her.
