Coral Springs Nationally Recognized for Financial Reporting
The City of Coral Springs Department of Finance was awarded the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting for their 2017 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR), by the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA).
The GFOA ensures that the CAFR is judged by an impartial panel of peers and meets the high standards of the program, clearly communicating Coral Springs’ financial story. This Certificate of Achievement is the highest form of recognition in governmental accounting and financial reporting. This recognition represents a significant accomplishment and represents the professionalism and management of the Coral Springs Finance Department.
Of the award, City Manager Mike Goodrum said, “Financial management and accountability is imperative to our City’s success. Our residents often see or read about improvements made throughout Coral Springs, those enhancements are a direct result of our City’s effective financial management.” Goodrum continued, “This recognition and our recent AAA credit rating from Fitch Ratings, exemplifies the dedication and accuracy in which our finance personnel perform.”
This marks the 39th year Coral Springs has received the GFOA Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting. This year the City is one of only 176 municipalities to receive such distinction in the State of Florida.
The GFOA is a non-profit professional organization, which serves nearly 19,000 government finance professionals throughout the nation. Residents are encouraged to stay-informed about our City’s finances and can review our CAFR online at coralsprings.org.
