City of Crestwood honored

The Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting has been awarded to the city of Crestwood by the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada for its comprehensive annual financial report.

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, accord-ing to a news release.

An Award of Financial Reporting Achievement has been awarded to Crestwood Director of Finance Diana Madrid, the person designated by the city as primarily responsible for preparing the award-winning CAFR.

The CAFR has been judged by an im-partial panel to meet the high standards of the program including demonstrating a constructive “spirit of full disclosure” to clearly communicate its financial story and motivate potential users and user groups to read the CAFR.
