FARMINGTON — For the 19th year in a row, the Davis County Clerk/Auditor’s office has received a certificate of excellence in financial reporting.
The Government Finance Officers Association of the U.S. and Canada awards it.
“It is for open disclosure and transparency” in financial reporting, said Curtis Koch, chief deputy, finance, for the County Clerk/Auditor’s office.
“It is a way for county residents to have confidence in how their funds are being used,” he said.
County Commission Chair John Petroff said the report not only requires detail on many issues, but must reflect changes that occur constantly.
The document is now two reports in one, Clerk/Auditor Steve Rawlings said. “It not only covers governmental issues but we must also show the county as if it’s a business entity.”
The City of Bountiful also was honored for its excellence in financial reporting from the organization. This is the 32nd consecutive year the city has been so honored, according to the award presenter.
