The Town of Marana Finance Department received a Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting from the Government Finance Officers Association for its FY 2012 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report. The Town has received the honor five consecutive years.

The certificate is the highest form of recognition in government accounting and financial reporting. The award, voted on by an impartial panel, is given to recipients that demonstrate a “spirit of full disclosure” to communicate their financial stories and motivate users and groups to read their annual financial reports.

“The Town believes in the importance of transparency,” said Marana Finance Director Erik Montague said. “We are accountable to our residents and business owners and use revenues in ways that benefit the community.”

The GFOA promotes the professional management of governments for the public benefit by identifying and developing financial policies and best practices and promoting their use through education, training, facilitation of member networking and leadership. The non-profit GFOA serves approximately 17,500 government finance professionals in North America.

The Marana capital improvements improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
