Crow Wing County was nationally recognized with a certificate and an award for financial reporting for the fifth year by the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada.

The Certificate for Excellence in Financial Reporting was awarded to Crow Wing County for its 2017 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report, or CAFR. The county is one of 17 in the state to earn this distinction.

"This is a testament to the type of work that is being done in our Finance Department at Crow Wing County," Administrative Services Director Deborah Erickson said in a news release.

"This award recognizes the work that is done to ensure that our financial data and information is reported accurately and timely, so we can continue that transparency to the public that the taxpayers of Crow Wing County deserve."

The award for Outstanding Achievement in Popular Financial Reporting was awarded for the 2017 Popular Annual Financial Report. The report extracts information from the CAFR and is designed to be user friendly. The county is one of five in the state to have received the award.
