Lawrenceville’s Finance Department has been awarded the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting for the second consecutive year. This annual award comes from the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada and is considered the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting.
“The city has worked diligently to create and promote avenues for transparency and effective, accurate investment of city funds to support the community’s vision for progress,” said Chuck Warbington, city manager. “We are proud of our finance department for attaining this notable achievement and demonstrating a high standard of excellence in money management and financial matters.”
The CAFR is judged by an impartial panel in order to maintain the program’s high standards and integrity. Lawrenceville Finance Director Keith Lee added, “We appreciate the constant support of Mayor and Council as well as the staff responsible for creating this report. The team compiled more than a decade’s worth of information and worked diligently to prepare this report. It is great to see that hard work rewarded in such a fashion.”
Moving forward, Lawrenceville’s finance department hopes to obtain a CAFR certificate each year while continuing to provide quality financial reports for the citizens of Lawrenceville.
