The City of Merriam recently received a prestigious national award for its annual financial report.
The Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) awarded the City the Certification of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting for its 2017 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR). The goal of the CAFR is to clearly communicate the City’s financial story in a spirit of transparency and full disclosure. This was the 25th consecutive year that Merriam has received this award.
Earlier this year, GFOA also honored Merriam with an award for outstanding achievement for its 2017 Popular Annual Financial Report (PAFR). The brief PAFR is a companion to the more detailed CAFR. Both finance reports had to pass a set of rigorous standards as determined by judges.
