Message from the Controller

Welcome Message

Welcome to the website for the Montgomery County Controller’s office. The controller, often referred to as the fiscal watchdog, plays an important role in overseeing the county government’s finances and taxpayer dollars. It is a role that I and the highly qualified financial professionals on my staff take very seriously.

Montgomery County is one of the most populous and wealthiest counties in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. With an annual budget of nearly a half-billion dollars, a workforce of 3,000 county employees, and responsibility for providing services to a vast and diverse geographical area, the Montgomery County government requires constant financial monitoring to ensure it runs efficiently and effectively. My highly qualified staff and I welcome that challenge to ensure the taxpayers of this county receive the services they pay for.

Please explore this website to learn more about what we do and review the financial statements and reports that are published here. It is your money and you are entitled to know how it is being handled. This office is committed to transparency and determined to make the sometimes dense financial information more accessible and easy to understand for all county residents. Please come back periodically as we strive to make county government more accessible to the people it serves.
