The City of Roanoke is proud to announce it has received the Certificate of Achievement from the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) for Excellence in Financial Reporting for the 17th consecutive year. An impartial panel, aiming to meet the high standards of the program, judged the report. The Certificate of Achievement 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.
FORVIS, the company who conducted the City of Roanoke audit, shared this comment from a member of the GFOA review panel; "In reviewing this report, it appears the City's team has dedicated a significant amount of effort in producing a very good Annual Comprehensive Financial Report and should be commended for this." When sharing this comment with the City Council, FORVIS stated this was the first time they had seen such a glowing remark.

We are proud to be awarded the GFOA Excellence in Financial Reporting award for the 17th year. Our Finance Department does an incredible job of providing easy to understand City financial transparency and we are so proud of this achievement.” Cody Petree, City Manager.
