Gilchrist County Tax Collector

03/20/2019

To the citizens of Gilchrist County,

This letter comes with a heavy heart announcing my retirement and resignation as Tax Collector of Gilchrist County. This has been a long and very difficult decision for me, but due to personal reasons, I feel that I am unable to fulfill my duties in the capacity necessary. I have implemented a vacancy/continuity policy pursuant to 197.103 F.S., and Terry E. Trail CFCA, Assistant Tax Collector, is duly authorized to act in the Tax Collector’s stead to perform the required duties and ensure the continuity of efficient operations in the Tax Collector’s office. I want to assure you that I am leaving this office with the utmost confidence, knowledge, experience, qualifications, and the capability of Mrs. Trail and the staff to continue serving our citizens well and to keep the operation of this office moving forward without interruption to our community. Mrs. Trail has been the Assistant Tax Collector for Gilchrist County since 2011. I have notified Honorable Governor Ron DeSantis, and an appointment is in progress.

I have dedicated 42 years of my life to Tax Collector Offices and have seen so many changes. My career started in the Pasco County Tax Collector’s Office under the Honorable Maxine S. Coulter. Within those 7 years, the first decals (1976) were issued instead of receiving new license plates each year. After moving to Gilchrist County in 1981, I was then employed by the Honorable Winfred W. Welch on February 1, 1984. Just after being hired, the Tax Collector offices were introduced to new DHSMV computer systems. As time passed by, and with the retirement of the Honorable Marilyn C. Bruce, I was then elected as Tax Collector in November of 2012.

I am truly going to miss being a part of the workforce of this office and especially my staff who are all very special to me. This has been such an honor and I have truly enjoyed the many years of service to the citizens of this county.

Sincerely,

Barbara J. Merritt
