About Weaverville

Twenty Consecutive Years Excelling in Financial Reporting

The Government Finance Office Association (GFOA) has awarded the Town of Weaverville with “Excellence in Financial Reporting” for the past 20 consecutive years.

The GFOA established the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting Program (CAFR Program) in 1945 to encourage state and local governments to work beyond the minimum requirements of generally-accepted accounting practices.

The annual preparation of comprehensive financial reports written with the spirit of public transparency and full disclosure is evaluated. The goal isn’t to assess the financial health of participating governments, but rather ensuring the public has access and transparency when it comes to municipal spending.

The Arbor Day Foundation created the Tree City program as a means of ‘greening up’ cities and towns across America since 1976. This nationwide movement provides the framework necessary for communities to manage and expand their public trees. More than 3,400 communities, across the United States, are recognized as “Tree Cities.” Each Tree City must meet four core standards of sound urban forestry management: maintaining a tree board or department, having a community tree ordinance, spending at least $2 per capita on urban forestry. Annually celebrating Arbor Day is also a part of the criteria.
