The Town of Niagara-on-the-Lake has been honoured with an international accounting award for the ninth consecutive year.
The municipality received the Canadian Award for Financial Reporting from the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada for its 2020 annual financial report.
The honour recognizes excellence in governmental accounting and financial reporting and represents a significant accomplishment by a local government and its management, the town said in a news release.
Lord Mayor Betty Disero credited treasurer Kyle Freeborn and the corporate services department “for their hard work in creating a financial report worthy of national recognition.”
Chief administrator Marnie Cluckie noted that despite fiscal challenges during the pandemic, “town staff remained committed to creating a comprehensive, professional and transparent financial report.”
