SNELLVILLE — For the sixth time in her career as the city’s controller, Jan Burke has been awarded the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting by the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada for the comprehensive annual financial report she wrote for the city.
The Certificate of Achievement 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 and its management.
“We strive to make sure our finances are reported accurately and responsibly for the residents of Snellville,” Burke said. “It is important for our residents to know they can have faith in the financial numbers we compile and report.
The CAFR has been judged by an impartial panel of GFOA officials to meet the high standards of the program, which includes demonstrating a constructive "spirit of full disclosure" to clearly communicate its financial story and motivate potential users and user groups to read the CAFR.
