The City of Milton and its Finance Department have been recognized for excellence, this time in producing the Fiscal Year 2009 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report.
For the second straight year, the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada has awarded Milton the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting. The award was presented for the city's 2009 report.
"Milton's Finance Department has, since the city's inception, been committed to the highest standards available," said Stacey Inglis, Milton's director of finance.
Inglis said producing the CAFR includes a yearly extensive audit, exhaustive research of historical data and numerous detailed written documents -- a months-long process involving every city department.
