State law requires that every local government publish within six months of the close of each fiscal year a complete set of audited financial statements. To fulfill that requirement, the City’s Finance Department prepares its City’s Comprehensive Annual Financial Report. The City of Hinesville’s Comprehensive Annual Financial Report reports the financial position and activities of the City. With the Financial Report, we aim to provide information that enables the reader to gain understanding of the City’s financial affairs.
For the past sixteen years, the City’s Comprehensive Annual Financial Report was awarded the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting by the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA). The certificate of Achievement is the highest form of recognition for excellence in state and local government financial reporting.
