Welcome to the Fremont County Treasurer’s Office: “Working to Best Serve You”
Scott is a fifth generation Wyomingite and a native of Lander. He graduated from Lander Valley High School in 1977 and received a B.S. degree in accounting from the University of Wyoming in 1982. Shortly after graduating college, Scott was employed by a local CPA firm where he performed auditing and income tax work for almost five years. In 1988, Mr. Harnsberger was appointed as Deputy County Treasurer. In December 1992, Scott was nominated by the Fremont County Republican Central Committee to fill the unexpired term of County Treasurer upon retirement of the Treasurer. He was selected and appointed by the Fremont County Commissioners. Scott was subsequently elected to five consecutive four year terms.
Although Mr. Harnsberger is responsible for all functions of the County Treasurer, he spends most of his time managing the County’s $40 million investment portfolio. He has extensive knowledge and experience in investing public funds, formulating public funds investment policy, and creating governmental accounting policy.
Scott lives just outside of Lander with his wife Teddi.
