Town Wins Award Again for Annual Financial Report
Finance Dept. Earns Honor for 27th Straight Year
The Government Finance Officers of the United States and Canada (GFOA) has awarded the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting to the Town of Garner for its 2016 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR).
An Award of Financial Reporting Achievement has been issued to the Town’s Finance Department. According to Town records, this is the 27th consecutive year that the Finance Department has earned the award for the CAFR.
The Certificate of Achievement is the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental
accounting and financial reporting, and its attainment represents a significant accomplishment
by a government and its management, the GFOA said in a statement.
The Town’s CAFR was judged by an impartial panel to meet the high standards of the program including demonstrating a constructive “spirit of full disclosure” to clearly communicate the Town’s financial story and motivate potential users and user groups to read the CAFR, the GFOA said.
The GFOA is a nonprofit professional association serving approximately 19,000 government finance professionals with offices in Chicago and Washington, D.C.
The award-winning CAFR and other Town financial documents can be viewed on the Finance Department’s main page.
