For the eighth consecutive year, Barb Neubauer, right, and the city of Stewartville have earned the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting. The Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) has once again honored Neubauer and the city for the city's comprehensive annual financial report (CAFR). Mayor Jimmie John King, left, presented the award to Neubauer, the city's finance director, at the City Council's regular meeting last week. The award honors Neubauer and the city for their financial reporting during 2014. "The Certificate of Achievement is the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting, and its attainment represents a significant accomplishment by a government and its management," states a news release from the Government Finance Officers Association of Chicago.
