For the 17th straight year, Carl Sandburg College has received the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting from the Government Finance Officers Association.

Sandburg Associate Vice President of Administrative Services/Treasurer Cory Gall informed the College’s Board of Trustees of the award during its regular monthly meeting Sept. 24. Sandburg received the award for its 2019 comprehensive annual financial report, which was submitted to the GFOA for review. The certificate recognizes excellence in governmental accounting and financial reporting.

The Board also approved a resolution providing for the issuance of up to $3.525 million in General Obligation Refunding Community College Bonds during its regular monthly meeting Thursday.
