The Floyd County Finance Department was recently presented a Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting.
The award is given out by the Government Finance Officers Association.
The GFOA established the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting Program (CAFR Program) in 1945 to encourage and assist state and local governments to go
beyond the minimum requirements of generally accepted accounting principles to prepare comprehensive annual financial reports that evidence the spirit of transparency and full disclosure and then to recognize individual governments that succeed in achieving that goal.
The Finance Department was recognized for their good work during Tuesday’s Floyd County Commission meeting.
