The Oregon Municipal Audit Law (ORS 297.405 ~ 297.555) requires a financial audit and examination be made of the accounts and financial affairs of every municipal corporation at least once a year.
The City has received an unqualified opinion on its annual financial audit from its independent auditors for over twenty-five years. These audits have found that the City's financial statements present fairly the City's financial condition and are in conformance with generally accepted accounting principles applied on a consistent basis. The annual audit also includes favorable Compliance and Internal Control reports as required by Government Auditing Standards.
Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR)
The City's complete audited financial statements are presented in a Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) that encompasses all funds and component units.
