Financial and Transparency Reports
The Finance Department is the general business management arm of City government, providing specific financial and accounting services for elected officials, City employees, and the citizens of Meridian.
The Finance Department plays a key role in the transparency of City financials and the overall financial controls placed into action for the annual audit. The City undergoes an annual audit performed by an independent auditor of its financials in accordance to State and City laws. The City's financials are prepared in accordance to State and Federal laws. In conjunction with the US Government, the City has adopted the following goals in relation to our financials:
- Government should be transparent. Transparency promotes accountability and provides information for citizens about what their Government is doing.
- Government should be participatory. Public engagement enhances the Government's effectiveness and improves the quality of its decisions.
- Government should be collaborative. Collaboration actively engages Americans in the work of their Government.
