SAN ANGELO, Texas – The City of San Angelo’s Finance Department has for the seventh straight year earned the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting for its 2019 comprehensive annual financial report from the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada.

The City’s comprehensive annual financial report (CAFR) is the annual financial audit of the City conducted by external auditors and approved by the City Council. The CAFR for the fiscal year that ended Sept. 30, 2019, demonstrates “a constructive spirit of full disclosure to clearly communicate its financial story,” the GFOA stated.

“Congratulations to our award-winning Finance Department for yet another year of excellence in financial reporting,” said City Finance Director Tina Dierschke. “I am very proud of this accomplishment and very thankful for the outstanding staff who earned it.”
