[ARCHIVED] City awarded Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting


The Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) recently presented the City of Brighton with the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting for the city’s Annual Comprehensive Financial Report for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2020. 

GFOA’s Certificate of Achievement is the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting. GFOA established this certificate program to encourage and assist state and local governments to go beyond the minimum requirements of generally accepted accounting principles to prepare annual comprehensive financial reports that evidence the spirit of transparency and full disclosure and then to recognize the individual governments that succeed in achieving the goal.

“We are truly honored to receive this award,” said Catrina Asher, Director of Finance. “Our team puts a lot of effort into putting together our Annual Comprehensive Financial Report every year, and this award helps to recognize those efforts.”
