TOWN OF DAVIE AWARDED FOR EXCELLENCE IN FINANCIAL REPORTING
Receives 7th Consecutive CAFR Award
DAVIE, Fla. – The Town of Davie has been awarded the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting for its Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) by the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA). The award is for the preparation of the Town’s CAFR for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2019.
This is the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting, and its attainment represents a significant accomplishment by a government. This marks the seventh consecutive year the Town has received this award.
The CAFR has been judged by an impartial panel that ensures the highest standards of the program are met and the certificate standards include the demonstration of a “spirit of full disclosure” to clearly communicate the Town’s financial story. The complete financial report can be viewed at www.davie-fl.gov.
“This award demonstrates the Town’s assurance to the highest level of budget practices, financial transparency, and commitment to those we serve,” said Town Administrator Richard J. Lemack. “I am proud of our team for achieving the CAFR award for the seventh consecutive year, which is a continued testament to public service professionalism.”
A formal presentation will be arranged at a future Town Council meeting.
