NO the treasurer is not responsible. The treasurer can not spend money
without the authorization of the Select Board or School Board. In fact
the treasurer may be violating the law if he or she fails to write the
check. Look at 24 VSA section 1576

To Treasurers out there.

If monies not voted by the people get authorization from the Selectboard

to be spent {and placed on a warrant}, which authorizes the Treasurer to

write a check[s], is the Treasurer responsible for spending monies

illegally???          Searsburg Treasurer-Josie
