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.

This prestigious award is presented to those governmental entities whose CAFRs achieve the highest standards in government accounting and financial reporting.
