Cash Management

Fiscal Reporting

Comprehensive Annual Financial Report

Each year, the Finance Department prepares the comprehensive annual financial report.

The report includes a description of city services, its accounting system and budgetary controls and a brief discussion about the city’s economic condition and outlook.

The annual report also includes an independent auditors’ report, management’s discussion and analysis, government-wide financial statements, fund financial statements and other financial and general information presented on a multiyear comparative basis.

Fiscal Year Summary Report

The fiscal year summary report┬áprovides a concise, easy to understand summary of financial information contained in the City’s CAFR. This report is intended to better inform the public about City’s financial condition, without excessive detail or the use of technical accounting terms.
