Chester County Prothonotary
Matt Holliday was elected as Chester County’s Prothonotary in 2015.
The department has 70 sworn deputies and is led by Carolyn “Bunny” Welsh, the county’s first female sheriff — an elected position. The department enforces court orders from common pleas court, holds sheriff property sales, serves protection-from-abuse orders and eviction notices, issues gun permits and transports prisoners. The agency also has a K-9 unit with explosive sniffing dogs and participates in a fugitive task force with U.S. Marshal Service.
Carolyn "Bunny" Welsh is the first woman to be elected Sheriff of Chester County.
The Office of the Treasurer serves primarily to receive, record and deposit most County funds resulting from payment of taxes, payment due on the sale of various state and county licenses, funds collected in the performance of public services, other state-related revenues (as agent for the State of PA), and payment of judgments and fines.
Our mission is to provide collection, receipt, and deposit services for all funds due to and received by the County of Chester in a courteous, efficient, accurate, accountable and timely manner, and further to provide all other support services as required in a way that allows us to meet the combined needs of community, business and government while operating within the framework of the County's overall mission statement.
Other major functions (related to collection of tax payments) involve generating annual and interim real estate tax invoices, and the processing of resultant payments. Additional areas of responsibility include:
