Treasurer / Collector

The role of the Collector/Treasurer’s Office within the Town of Saugus is two fold.  The Collector’s Office is responsible for the collection of all taxes such as Real Estate, Personal Property, Motor Vehicle Excise, and Boat Excise as well as Water and Sewer user charges and Parking Violations.

The Treasurer’s Office is responsible for receiving, recording, and investing all funds resulting from the collection of taxes, water/sewer charges as well as other various types of fees collected by other Town offices.  Those may include but are not limited to state receipts, grants, licensing and permitting fees, filing fees, violations, school lunch receipts, scholarships, or donations.  The Treasurer reports all cash received to the Town Accountant who then uses that information to prepare the Town’s operating budget.
