Village wins coveted CAFR award
The Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) recently awarded the Village of Tinley Park with the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Finance Reporting for the Village’s comprehensive annual financial report (CAFR).
This award 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. This is the 26th consecutive year the Village has won the award.
“I want to congratulate the entire Finance Department staff for preparing yet another outstanding financial report,” Tinley Park Mayor Jacob Vandenberg said. “The fact Brad and his staff have won this award for the Village for 26 years straight is a testament to the fantastic job they do day in and day out.”
The Village’s CAFR was judged by an impartial panel to meet the high standards of the program, which includes demonstrating a constructive “spirit of full disclosure” to clearly communicate its financial story and motivate potential users and user groups to read the CAFR.
