County Finance Department honored with Excellence in Financial Reporting Award

 Finance Department received the highest form of commendation in governmental accounting for the twenty-third year in a row


Mesa County Commissioners presented a Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting by the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) to the Finance Department for its comprehensive annual financial report in public hearing.

The prestigious award recognizes governmental accounting and financial reporting and represents a significant accomplishment by the Finance Department leadership and staff, which includes Scott Stewart, Pam Noonan, Eleanor Thomas, Katherine Boozell, Judy Barnett, and Lynn Zubek. Mesa County has received this honor every year since 1993.

Mesa County’s comprehensive annual financial report was judged by an impartial panel of GFOA reviewers.
