MARIETTA - The Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) presented the City of Marietta a Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting for its Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) for the budget year ending on June 30, 2017. The award is the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting and represents a significant achievement by the City.
An international group reviews the City’s audit and judge the comprehensiveness of the information in the audit, how it’s presented, and how easy it is for the public to see and understand what the City does with their money and how it’s spent.
“It’s is an honor to receive any type of recognition for the excellent job our employees do on a daily basis,” said, City Manager Bill Bruton. “Our Finance department has continued to surpass all expectations by receiving this award for the past thirty years. This recognition is important because it is awarded based on our City’s openness, transparency, and our ability to be good stewards of our tax payers’ dollars. I hope our citizens understand the type of hard work and dedication our staff puts in to ensure we are one of the best municipalities not only in the state but also the nation.”
This is the 30th consecutive year Marietta has received the award. The City’s comprehensive annual financial report is available on the City’s website.
