There’s a new honor tonight for The City of Meridian.
City leaders are celebrating The Certificate of Achievement For Excellent Financial Reporting.
This marks the 23rd year The Government Financial Officers Association and the United States and Canada is awarding the certificate.
“We have systems and processes in place. We have people in place. Between the council and mayor’s office we’re doing a good job of managing our finances even during tight budget years,” said Mayor Percy Bland, City of Meridian.
Mayor Bland says the association does extensive observations in financial data and hopes the city will be awarded in years to come.
