Ottumwa is receiving special recognition from The Government Finance Officers Association.

The city's finance department was rewarded for having excellent financial reporting during the 2020 fiscal year.

The award is considered one of the highest forms of recognition a city could receive. To each such an achievement, the city is required to be transparent in all of its financial matters.

Finance Director Kala Mulder says her department's priority is to make sure the community’s money is always being used correctly. 

“I’m trying to do my job to the best of my ability and inform the council, citizens, and our employees with the city," said Mulder. " It is important for everyone to understand where their taxes are going towards."

The association's Government Financing Award was established in 1945 to recognize financial excellence in state and local governments.
