City Receives Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting

The certificate is the highest form of recognition possible in the field of governmental accounting and financial reporting.

(Editor's note: The following is a press release from the city of Snellville.)

The Mayor and Council are proud to announce that the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting has been awarded to the City of Snellville by the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) for its Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR). 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.

An award of Financial Reporting Achievement has been awarded to the individual(s), department or agency designated by the government as primarily responsible for preparing the award-winning CAFR. This has been presented to Jan Burke, Controller.

The CAFR has been judged by an impartial panel to meet the high standards of the program including demonstrating a constructive “spirit of full disclosure” to clearly communicate its financial story and motivate potential users and user groups to read the CAFR.

The GFOA is a nonprofit professional association serving approximately 17,500
government finance professionals with offices in Chicago, IL, and Washington, D.C.

The people who work for the City of Snellville do an excellent job and it's good to see them getting recognition from regional and national agencies. Congratulations to Controller Jan Burke for winning the financial reporting award. She now joins Economic Development director Eric VanOtteran as a 2012 award winner. Eric spearheaded the entrepreneur program that won the Atlanta Regional Commission's CREATE award in the Regional Prosperity and Economic Development Category. Snellville is certainly proud of Jan and Eric for jobs well done.
