The purpose of the Popular Annual Financial Report (PAFR) is to provide an overview of the financial position of the City of Griffin, as reported in the City’s Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR), along with other information of interest. The financial information presented here is in summarized and condensed form and does not substitute for the City’s CAFR. The CAFR outlines the City’s financial position and operating activities each fiscal year presented in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). The PAFR does not conform to GAAP and associated standards as set forth by the applicable governing bodies, but is suitable for those readers who prefer an overview or summary of the City’s government and its financial condition. Some of the information is from the City’s Annual Budget. The City’s CAFR received the award for outstanding financial reporting from the Government Finance Officers Association.
