GMD Receives Excellence in Financial Reporting

For the ninth consecutive year, GMD has been awarded the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting by the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada for their comprehensive annual financial reports (CAFR). The Certificate of Achievement is the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting. 

GMD's fiscal year 2010 report was judged by an impartial panel to meet the highest standards of the program, including demonstrating a constructive "spirit of full disclosure" to clearly communicate its financial story and motivate people to read the report. 

Lisa Hornyak, Chief Financial Officer, for GMD said, "This award is a reflection of GMD's commitment to transparency as well as the professional work of the entire finance department and GMD's leadership team."

The association is a nonprofit professional group with offices in Chicago and Washington, DC, serving about 17,500 government finance professionals. 

Public Hearing/Rate Correction

Correction in Monthly Charges

We apologize for the inaccurate information printed by the newspaper concerning the monthly charges based on specific meter sizes. Please see the Rates page on our website for the correct information, which will also be republished by the newspaper. Should you have any questions, please call 864-943-8002.

We are required to have a second public hearing, as the commission initially passed what was erroneously printed by the newspaper. The public hearing for the corrections will be held on Wednesday, August 31, 2011 at 5:00 PM at the Emmett F. Brooks Facility at 110 Metro Drive.
