Linn County’s fiscal year 2015 Popular Annual Financial Report (PAFR) was issued today and is now available on Linn County’s website at www.linncounty.org. The report provides citizens with an overview of how their tax dollars are managed and spent. While the main purpose of the report is to provide easy to understand financial information, it also highlights accomplishments and major initiatives of the past year and demonstrates the vital role county government plays as a resource to all county residents and businesses.
Printed copies of the report are being distributed in today’s edition of The Gazette (Dec. 28) as well as the Linn News-Letter on Dec. 29, the Mount Vernon-Lisbon Sunlight on Dec. 31 and the Marion Times on Jan. 7.
Linn County has earned the award for “Outstanding Achievement in Popular Annual Financial Reporting” from the Government Finance Officers Association for 17 consecutive years. To receive this award, Linn County’s report has to meet high standards in creativity, understandability, distribution and reader appeal.
