SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the DP Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.
BEV JORGENSEN, Dana Point, Executive Director of the Dana Point Chamber of Commerce
The Dana Point Chamber of Commerce is very proud of our City, which the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) awarded a Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting for its Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2016.
The Certificate of Achievement is a prestigious national award recognizing conformance with the highest standards for preparation of state and local government financial reports. In order to be awarded a Certificate of Achievement, a government unit must publish an easily readable and efficiently organized comprehensive annual financial report, whose contents conform to program standards. Such CAFR must satisfy both generally accepted accounting principles and applicable legal requirements. A Certificate of Achievement is valid for a period of one year only. The City of Dana Point received a Certificate of Achievement for 28 consecutive years (fiscal years 1989 through 2016).
A City that receives this achievement for 28 years is a City we can all be proud of. We commend the City of Dana Point on their conservative budgeting.
The Chamber champions business prosperity and economic vitality and look forward to working with our businesses and community in a City that is well-run and uses a conservative budgeting approach.
We are Dana Point! Job well done, City of Dana Point!
