City of Edmonds recognized for financial reporting


The City of Edmonds has received the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting from the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) for its 2016 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR).

“This highest form of recognition for financial reporting is due to the good work of our Finance Department staff,” said City Finance Director Scott James. The award demonstrates that the department “is working hard to ensure that the city’s finances, and financial story, are clearly communicated to our citizens,” James added.
