Town of Clinton Recognized for Financial Reporting Excellence

The Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) awarded the Town of Clinton the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting for its Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2018. 

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. 

In order to be awarded this Certificate of Achievement Clinton’s CAFR was judged by an impartial panel of professional individuals with expertise in public sector financial reporting which included financial statement preparers, independent auditors, academics and other financial professionals, to meet the high standards of the program.  

Clinton’s achievement demonstrated our successful goal to go beyond the minimum requirements of an annual report and signal the spirit of transparency and full disclosure to clearly communicate its financial story and allow users of the CAFR the ability fully assess the financial health of the Town.

We would like to thank the Town of Clinton Departments for their contribution and the Finance Office for their diligence and high standards towards this achievement.
