Highest Form of Governmental Accounting Recognition Granted to City Finance Department

 

LAWRENCEVILLE (METRO ATLANTA) GA – October 12, 2016

The City of Lawrenceville’s Finance Department has been awarded its first-ever “Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting” (CAFR) award by the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA). This annual award is the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting. The honor has been received after the City’s first attempt at the CAFR process, which represents a significant accomplishment by a government agency and its management team.

“Lawrenceville’s mission to provide the highest quality services to its citizens and business community is achieved through the talents of a well-trained and knowledgeable staff,” said Chuck Warbington, City Manager. “We are proud of our Finance Department for attaining this notable achievement and maintaining Lawrenceville’s standard of expertise.”

The CAFR is judged by an impartial panel in order to maintain the program’s high standards and integrity.  Lawrenceville Finance Director, Donna Wiernik added, “We really appreciate the constant support of our Mayor and Council. Our team worked very hard to compile this report, which includes ten years of statistical information.”

The City of Lawrenceville aims to continue this level of excellence within the Finance Department and all other departments in order to better serve the community. Moving forward, the City’s Finance Department hopes to obtain a CAFR certificate each year while continuing to provide quality financial reports for the citizens of Lawrenceville.
