RACINE — Work on the county’s comprehensive annual financial report netted an award Wednesday, receiving the Government Finance Officers Association’s Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting.

The U.S. and Canadian association is a nonprofit group of finance professionals, and the Certificate of Achievement bestowed on Racine County is its highest form of recognition when it comes to government accounting and financial reporting.

This marks the fourth consecutive year Racine County’s Finance Department has been recognized through the award, which includes demonstrating a “constructive spirt of full disclosure” to be clear and to encourage users to read the financial report, a county press statement said.

“We have a great Finance Team in place at the county,” Racine County Executive James Ladwig said in the release Wednesday. “Citizens in Racine County can take pride in knowing that their tax dollars are managed by professionals who excel in their work and provide financial accountability.”
