Ozaukee County is seeking a treasurer to replace Joshua Morrison, who is resigning effective Oct. 28.

Morrison announced his resignation last month, and the county’s Executive Committee said this week it is seeking applicants to complete his term, which runs through 2024.

The treasurer holds a four-year term.

Applications will be accepted until the position is filled, according to the county, with the first round of interviews to be held the week of Sept. 25.

According to a press release, the county is seeking a “detail oriented and civic-minded public servant with strong financial acumen.”

It is preferred that applicants, who must live in Ozaukee County, have a bachelor’s degree in finance, accounting, business administration or a related field with eight years of administration experience in finance-related programs, according to the job description.

Previous supervisory experience is also desired.

Online applications can be accessed at, and interested candidates are urged to call County Administrator Jason Dzwinel at 238-8202 or email him at for more information.

Morrison, who has been treasurer since 2017, resigned to become business manager for the Washington Ozaukee Public Health Department.

The switch to a job serving two counties will be a challenge, he said, one that will also require him to use a different type of skills than he does now.

  His goal as treasurer, he said, was to “deliver the services to county residents that they have come to know and trust.

“This job has meant the world to me. It is hard to leave.”

But, Morrison said, he’s trying to “figure out the work-family-life balance,” something he said he believes he can achieve with his new job.
