Town of Thomaston Financial Statements
The Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) awarded a Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting to the Town of Thomaston for its Comprehensive Annual Financial Report for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2017. This was the fourteenth consecutive year that the Town has achieved this prestigious award. In order to be awarded a Certificate of Achievement, a government unit must publish an easily readable and efficiently organized Comprehensive Annual Financial Report, whose contents conform to program standards. Such Comprehensive Annual Financial Report must satisfy both generally accepted accounting principles and applicable legal requirements.
The Finance Department continuously strives to enhance the quality and ensure the integrity of the financial information provided to elected officials and staff, as well as to the citizens of the Town of Thomaston. The Finance Department will continue pursuit of its goals: to provide the highest degree of public credibility and confidence in its operations; working to foster and maintain a local government environment which demonstrates fiscal accountability, efficiency, integrity, and stability; and of course, the overall strive towards excellence.
The preparation of this report would not have been possible without the dedicated service of the finance staff and the cooperation of Town departments. My sincerest appreciation is extended to all of the contributing staff members.
