On November 3, the City of Tehachapi’s Finance Department was notified they had been honored with the “Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting” from the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA).
The award recognizes government organizations that go beyond the basic requirements in annual reports to aid in transparency and full disclosure. The GFOA has been awarding state and local governments since 1945 to recognize excellence in annual financial reporting.
“I couldn’t be more delighted to hear that Hannah Chung and her team are being acknowledged again this year for their hard work and diligence. Each and every council report they submit regarding finances is done so very well, it’s really no surprise they are receiving this prestigious honor,” said Joan Pogan-Cord Tehachapi Councilmember.
“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, “stated by GFOA’s Michele Levine.
