We’ve done it again! Clayton's Finance Department has won the industry's highest award for the 17th year in a row.

Awards hanging on the wall​The Department's Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) for last fiscal year has been awarded a "Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting" by the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States (GFOA). It's the organization's top honor and the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting. It represents a significant accomplishment by the Town and its management. The previous 16 reports won the high honor, too.

We go well above and beyond the minimum accounting standards to make sure the work of our town is transparent and fully disclosed to taxpayers.
