Township Receives Award For Financial Reporting

Wed, Oct 8th, 2014

The Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) awarded the Township a 2013 GFOA Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting.

The award is the highest form of recognition in government accounting and financial reporting and its attainment represents a significant accomplishment by a government and its management.

"As I've had the pleasure of saying the last couple of years heading into our public budget work sessions, knowing that the Township's financial reporting system has again been recognized for excellence adds a tremendous amount of confidence to our budget process and projections," commented Board Chairman Fred Conner.

"In fact, similar to last year when just 25 out of Pennsylvania's over 2,500 municipalities and just 1,913 municipalities across all of the U.S. received similar recognition, Whitpain is fortunate indeed to have the team of professionals we have accounting for our financial resources."
