Anita L. Sullivan is the County Collector for Montgomery County.
Anita has worked for the county since 1987. She began working for the former Collector, Robert Schmidt, in September 1987. She worked for Mr. Schmidt until January 1995, at which time she stayed home to be with her children. She returned in July 1999 to the Assessor's Office until 2002. She ran for the office of Collector that year. She was elected and took office in March 2003.
Since taking office she has upgraded the billing system and made credit/debit card payments available by counter, phone, and online.
Anita has also taken on the task of microfilming the tax records. She used the grant program through the State of Missouri to film the majority of the old tax records dating back to 1866. Part of the grants also went to moving the old tax records from the basement of the courthouse and obtaining shelving to house them in the climate controlled room located in the Courthouse Annex. The goal is to have all real estate tax records filmed. The remaining books are prepared, awaiting bid requests. She will continue to work on making sure the remaining personal property records are preserved on microfilm. The Collector's Office, as well as the Missouri State Archives, house copies of the microfilm.
