MWA recognized for financial reporting

The Macon Water Authority was awarded the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting during its November meeting, according to a Tuesday news release.

It marks the 17th consecutive year the authority has received the recognition from the Government Finance officers Association of the United States and Canada.

The award, considered to be the most prestigious in government financial reporting, can help a government body or an authority be viewed more favorably by credit rating agencies, which can help influence future bond issue interest rates or other means of long-term financing.
