Audits and Certified Financial Statements


Money received by a local government is public money. Each local government has a responsibility to manage its money in a manner that ensures the best interests of the public are being served. To help ensure public funds are properly accounted for, Alaska law requires all municipalities to submit an annual audit, except for second class cities, which may, generally, submit an audit if required or a statement of annual income and expenditures commonly called a certified financial statement.
