City earns financial reporting award
Financial department recognized for fourth straight year
For the fourth year running, the city of West Linn was honored by the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada with the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting.
The award, announced last week, was given to the city's Finance Department in recognition of its comprehensive annual financial report (CAFR) for fiscal year 2012. The city has earned this honor each year since 2009.
"We are tremendously proud of our awards from the Government Finance Officers Association," said Assistant City Manager Kirsten Wyatt. "This indicates the level of professionalism of our finance department, and also shows the high quality financial reporting that we offer to the community.
The GFOA is a nonprofit professional association based out of Chicago and Washington D.C., and awards the certificate to cities who are able to "meet the high standards of the program including demonstrating a constructive 'spirit of full disclosure' to clearly communicate its financial story and motivate potential users and user groups to read the CAFR," according to a press release.
