All local governments are required to annually produce and distribute a Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) in conformance with generally accepted accounting standards established by the Government Accounting Standards Board. The CAFR is a thorough and detailed presentation of the City’s financial condition, with financial activity for a fiscal year and its end of the year financial position.
The CAFR contains three sections:
Introductory section: Includes transmittal letter
Financial section: Includes independent auditor's report, management's discussion and analysis, government-wide financial statements, fund financial statements, notes to financial statements, required supplementary information, combining financial statements, and schedules
Statistical section: Includes additional financial, economic, and demographic information
The data reported in the CAFR encompasses all of the City’s programs and departments. A firm of licensed, certified public accountants audits the CAFR's financial statements.
The Single Audit Report is a rigorous, organization-wide audit or examination of an entity that expends $750,000 or more of Federal assistance (known as Federal funds, grants, or awards) received for its operations. The objective is to assure the Federal government as to the management and use of such funds by the City.
The City collects Public Facilities Fees when it issues building permits to mitigate impacts on certain public facilities caused by new development. The fees are then used to finance the acquisition, construction, and improvement of public facilities needed as a result of new development. This report outlines the purpose of each of these fees and how the City uses them.
