The District of Lake Country and its chief financial officer have been awarded the Canadian Award for Financial Reporting for its 2014 annual financial report.

The award is handed out by the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) and is designed to encourage municipal governments to publish high quality financial reports.

It was the first year that Lake Country had submitted for the award and chief financial officer Rose Bronswyk Kassa says it was great to win the award in the first year.

She credited the team she works with for being able to earn the recognition.

“To achieve this award in the first year we submitted the report for review is a significant achievement,” she said. “We are lucky to have a dedicated team of professional staff to produce the report and to meet the financial reporting standards required for an award.  I want to thank all staff for their collective efforts.”
