The Village of Harrison Hot Springs Council meeting began their first February meeting on a positive note.
Financial Officer Tracey Jones and the village were presented with the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) Canadian Award for Financial Reporting.
“We are very proud to receive the Canadian Award for Excellence in Financial Reporting,” Mayor Leo Facio said in a statement. “Financial Officer Tracey Jones has done an excellent job presenting our financial information in a transparent and award-winning manner. Community Services Coordinator Rhonda Schell was responsible for the exciting and engaging layout, which showcases the good work of the council and staff of Harrison Hot Springs.”
An impartial Canadian review committee judges the annual financial report of the candidates, according to a statement from the Chicago-based association. The criteria include demonstrating a constructive “spirit of full disclosure designed to clearly communicate the municipality’s financial story and to motivate potential users and user groups to read the report.”
