Once again, the Town of Woodbridge has earned the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting from the national nonprofit Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) for fiscal year 2018. The Town’s audit was judged by an impartial panel to determine if it met the program’s high standards, including a “spirit of full disclosure” to communicate the Town’s financial story.
“The Certificate of Achievement is the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting, and its attainment represents a significant accomplishment by a government and its management,” the GFOA wrote in a letter to the Town’s First Selectman, Beth Heller. The certificate of recognition was presented to the Town’s Director of Finance, Tony Genovese.
“This achievement recognizes the outstanding work of our Board of Finance and our Finance Department,” said First Selectman Beth Heller.
Board of Finance Chair Matthew Giglietti added, “This audit award is particularly important because it helps residents understand how their tax dollars are spent.”
