New Jasper County collector sworn in

News

A new collector is taking over elected office in Jasper County.

Republican Steve McIntosh was sworn-in in a ceremony at the Jasper County courthouse this morning. He was voted in to the office last November. And while most other county offices switch on January first, the handover is a little later for county collectors. McIntosh says that’s given him extra time to learn about the job and who he’ll be working with.

“It’s a very good staff. They really care about doing a great job for the taxpayers of Jasper County. They’re dedicated, sincere – great staff,” says Steve McIntosh.

McIntosh takes over from Steve Holt who had served as the Jasper County collector for the last 30 years.
