The City of Battle Ground has earned the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting Award from the Government Finance Officers Association. The award recognizes the city for demonstrating transparency and full disclosure in its 2019 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR).
The CAFR is a detailed and transparent accounting of the city’s expenditures through the use of financial reports, supporting data, and narrative. Prior to publication of the CAFR, its contents undergo an independent audit by the Washington State Auditor’s Office. The city has marked 20 consecutive years of clean audits.
“This award and the city’s record of excellence in financial reporting reflects the value we place on transparency and accountable stewardship of public resources, “said Mayor Adrian Cortes, “It also speaks to the professionalism of the city's Finance Director Meagan Lowery and her staff.”
