Snellville receives financial reporting award for 7th time

Snellville’s City Controller, Jan Burke, was recently awarded the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting by the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada for her comprehensive annual financial report. This is the seventh time in eight years the city’s financial reporting has been recognized.

“I hope this award offers Snellville citizens peace of mind when it comes to how we compile and report the city’s finances,” Burke said. “I am proud to say we are consistently compiling accurate and thorough financial documentation that residents can be confident in.”

The Certificate of Achievement is the highest form of recognition in governmental accounting and financial reporting and demonstrates the city’s “spirit of full disclosure” to clearly communicate its financial story.

Government Finance Officers Association provides best practices, professional development, resources, and practical research for more than 20,500 members and the communities they serve.
