Marysville earns Excellence in Financial Reporting honor
For the 13th consecutive year, in February 2021 the City of Marysville received the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting from the Government Finance Officer Association of the U.S. and Canada.
The award commends the city for its comprehensive annual financial report. A comprehensive annual financial report is a government financial statement that looks at long-term financial trends and goes beyond minimums established for public sector employees. The report was judged by an impartial panel to meet the high standards of the program, which includes the city demonstrating a constructive “spirit of full disclosure” to clearly communicate its financial story.
"We hope that your example will encourage other government officials in their efforts to achieve and maintain an appropriate standard of excellence in financial reporting," wrote Michele Mark Levine, Technical Services Director for the Government Finance Officer Association, in a letter of congratulations to Mayor Jon Nehring.
