The City of Alice’s comprehensive annual financial reports for the year ended September 30, 2017, from which the information on page 6 has been drawn, was/were awarded the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting by Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA).  The Certificate of Achievement is the highest form of recognition for excellence in state and local government financial reporting.  In order to be awarded a Certificate of Achievement, a government must publish an easily readable and efficiently organized comprehensive annual financial report.  This report must satisfy both generally accepted accounting principles and applicable legal requirements.

A Certificate of Achievement is valid for a period of one year only.  We believe that our current comprehensive annual financial report continues to meet the Certificate of Achievement Program’s requirements and we have submitted it to GFOA to determine its eligibility for another certificate.
