The city of Port Huron has been awarded a 38th consecutive Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting. The award comes from the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada and it's given for the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report. Officials say the Certificate of Achievement is the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting. An Award of Financial Reporting Achievement has been awarded to former Director of Finance John Ogden and current Director of Finance Edward Brennan, as well as the city's entire Finance Department. The recognition is a demonstration of the high standards of the program, including a constructive "spirit of full disclosure" to clearly communicate its financial story.
