(b)  The budget relating to the requirements of the clerk as clerk of the board of county commissioners, county auditor, and custodian or treasurer of all county funds and other county-related duties.

(3)  Each county fee officer shall make provision for establishing a fiscal year beginning October 1 and ending September 30 of the following year, and shall report his or her finances annually upon the close of each fiscal year to the county fiscal officer for inclusion in the annual financial report by the county.
