The City’s Finance Department consists of three Divisions:


Monday - Friday (Excluding City Recognized Holidays)                           8:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

Annual Operating Budget

Per Ohio Revised Code, the Finance Department creates an annual operating budget for the City of Franklin that must be approved by City Council.  The budget is monitored and adjusted as necessary throughout the year.  The annual budget document includes a financial summary for the prior year, a detailed budget for the current year, and the City's 5-Year Capital Improvement Plan.

Comprehensive Annual Financial Report

At the end of each fiscal year, the Finance Director prepares a Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) that is audited by an independent accounting firm. Since 1989, the Government Finance Officers Association has awarded the City of Franklin a “Certificate of Achievement of Excellence in Financial Reporting” for its yearly CAFR. This prestigious award is presented to those governmental entities whose CAFRs achieve the highest standards in government accounting and financial reporting.

State Auditor Awards

The Finance Department was awarded an Ohio Auditor of State Award for Distinction for fiscal year 2011 - 2014 for having a clean audit and CAFR.
