At the December town council meeting, Mount Pleasant Mayor Linda Page and Mount Pleasant Town Council recognized the administrative services and finance division staff for two prestigious awards highlighting excellence in financial reporting.

The Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) recently awarded the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting to the Town of Mount Pleasant. This is the 25th consecutive year that GFOA has awarded the certificate to Mount Pleasant for its comprehensive annual financial report (CAFR).

The GFOA also awarded the town the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award for the second year.

“The Certificate of Achievement and the Distinguished Budget Presentation Awards are the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting. This represents a significant national accomplishment by the Town of Mount Pleasant and the administrative services department and the finance division,” said Mayor Page.

“I would like to recognize financial services officer Jeanne Griffin and the finance division staff for their work on the CAFR, and I would like to commend administrative services deputy director Jan Crates and budget support technician Peggy Conkel for their work on the budget presentation award,” said CFO Charlie Potts. “Only through team work and keen attention to details can we maintain the level of services our residents have come to expect of us.”
