Bibb finance department noted for excellence

The Bibb County finance department has been recognized again for continued excellence in financial reporting.

Commission Chairman Sam Hart presented the award — a Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting — to Bibb Finance Director Deborah Martin and her staff at Thursday evening’s commission meeting.

It is the 24th consecutive year the finance department has received the award from the Government Finance Officer Association of the United States and Canada.

The certificate is the highest form of recognition in governmental accounting and financial reporting, according to the group.

“This isn’t just a plaque to hang on the wall,” Hart said.
