Glendale’s Popular Annual Financial Report Receives Outstanding Achievement Award
Glendale, CA – The City of Glendale is committed to fostering an informed and engaged community. Recently, the City’s Popular Annual Financial Report (PAFR) for Fiscal Year 2014 (most recently reviewed) received an award for outstanding achievement. In July 2015, Glendale received notice of the outstanding achievement award from the Government Finance Officers Association.
The Government Finance Officers Association established the Popular Annual Financial Reporting Awards Program (PAFR Program) in 1991 to encourage and assist state and local governments to extract information from their comprehensive annual financial report to produce high quality popular annual financial reports specifically designed to be readily accessible and easily understandable to the general public and other interested parties without a background in public finance and then to recognize individual governments that are successful in achieving that goal.
