We’re thrilled to announce that Lehigh County Authority and its Chief Financial Officer, Edward Klein, were recently honored with an award for Excellence in Financial Reporting!

The Excellence in Financial Reporting award is presented by the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) of the United States and Canada, and recognizes Klein and LCA for 2020’s annual comprehensive financial report.

In a press release announcing the honor, GFOA says the 2020 report met “the high standards of the program, which includes demonstrating a constructive ‘spirit of full disclosure’ to clearly communicate its financial story … The Certificate of Achievement is the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting, and its attainment represents a significant accomplishment by a government and its management.”

“This award is a testament to the talented team of employees at LCA who manage our accounting and finances on a daily basis,” says Liesel Gross, Chief Executive Officer. “We are especially proud of their work to deliver exceptional financial reporting and we congratulate them on this achievement!”
