The city of Woodstock has received a certificate for excellence in financial reporting from the Government Finance Officers Association.
It’s the 29th straight year Woodstock has received the award, according to the city.
This most recent certificate was awarded for Woodstock’s comprehensive annual financial report for the fiscal year that ended June 30. The report was judged by an impartial panel to have met 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 report.
“This is the 29th year that the City of Woodstock has received the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting Award,” Woodstock Chief Financial Officer Ron Shelby said in a statement. “It represents a team effort and a lot of hard work between the City’s Finance Department, and its outside auditors, throughout the year. Our ultimate goal is always to provide the highest levels of financial accuracy, transparency and accountability to our citizens.”
