Your County Collector, Shawn Schlottach

The County Collector's office strives to provide the best service to the taxpayers of Gasconade County. With more than 30 years of experience in the Gasconade County Collector's office, I was elected to this position in 1991. Prior to this position I served as Deputy Collector from 1986-1991. My Deputy, Glenda Shockley, has been assisting the taxpayers since 2004.
