The Auditor’s Office is the recipient of the Government Finance Officers Association’s (GFOA) Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting for its Annual Comprehensive Financial Report for the fiscal year that ended September 30, 2021. The Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting is the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting. This is the county’s 30th consecutive award for Excellence in Financial Reporting from GFOA.
“ I am extremely proud of my staff for their hard work and dedication to the county and its residents, “ said County Auditor Julie Kiley. “Their commitment to ensuring that taxpayer dollars are being spent in accordance with Texas law and best accounting practices is commendable. I encourage our residents to review our Popular Annual Financial Report to learn more about how their tax dollars are being spent. “
Additionally, the Auditor’s Office has received GFOA’s Award for Outstanding Achievement in Popular Annual Financial Reporting. This is the county’s 17th time receiving this award.
