County commissioners recognized Wilson County's financial services staff after the office received an Excellence in Financial Reporting Program award from the Government Finance Officer Association. The association established the program to encourage and assist state and local governments to go beyond the minimum requirements of generally accepted accounting principles to prepare comprehensive annual financial reports that evidence the spirit of transparency and full disclosure and then to recognize individual governments that do so. The program's goal is not to assess the financial health of participating governments, but to ensure that users of their financial statements have the information they need to do so themselves. Wilson County government has been recognized for six consecutive years.
