Try, Inspire, Qualify

Michael Green - County Treasurer

It is with great sadness that we announce our County Treasurer, Michael Green, passed away peacefully at home last week. Michael has been given 25 years’ service to the County, firstly acting as treasurer for the first WINGS, and then as our treasurer from 1995. Michael has been a support to the 5 County Commissioners whom he has served and has always ensured that our finances have been handled in the most appropriate and proper way.

Our thoughts are with Frances, Michael’s wife, and his family at this sad time.
