State Treasurer Lynn Roger has presented a check for $25,695.25 in unclaimed property funds to Geary County. "This is money that has been turned back for various vendors that should have gone to Geary County originally. It's refunds, or I think in this case some dividends for businesses and they got diverted." Rogers added that after a period of time it gets turned back into the state, and the Treasurer's Office is responsible to return it to people in the best way that they can.
Geary County Treasurer Kathy Tremont said right now the money will be put into the county's general fund. "It's not necessarily extra money but that's where it will be placed. I don't know if it will be redistributed to the units that it came to. Some of them were really small."
