Jackson County is now more than $13,000 richer thanks to the Missouri State Treasurer’s Office.

State Treasurer Scott Fitzpatrick said the money comes from unclaimed property. The money comes from a variety of sources including municipalities and other entities. The $13,000 is from 51 different accounts.

The County will review the sources of the unclaimed property funds to determine where the money needs to go and how it can be used.
