Each year, the Business Department prepares the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) and the Popular Annual Financial Report (PAFR), which is then audited and published on our website.  For the past 14 years, the Business Department has been recognized for conforming to the highest standards of preparation of state and local government for these reports.  The reports, though thorough, can be time consuming and difficult to sift through. Here we are providing  a quick reference of important financial data extracted from the full report.  The full report can be found on the Business Department’s webpage, in addition to other financial reports published each year.
