As official custodian of all City money, the Treasurer has the authority to invest money in eligible securities authorized by government code and the City's investment policy. In addition, the Treasurer works with the City Finance Department in accounting for all revenues and expenditures.
The City's current Treasurer is Mark Celio who was elected to the office in November 2008. Mark grew up in the Diablo Valley and graduated from De La Salle High School. He obtained a BBA in Business Administration from Loyola Marymount University. There he also won the Ignatian Award for the top graduate in service, leadership and academics.

Mark and his wife Kristin love Pleasant Hill for its wonderful Recreation and Park District, variety of family activities, service organizations, small town feel and big town shopping and dining options.
