By on July 12, 2013

SUGAR GROVE—The Sugar Grove Village Board at its July 16 meeting received a Certificate of Achievement in Excellence for Financial Report from the Government Finance Officers Association.

This is the 12th year Sugar Grove has received the award.

The award represents achievements of the Village Board and staff for its governmental accounting and presentation skills. Sugar Grove satisfied nationally recognized guidelines in its last fiscal statement.

The village remained in the black in its last fiscal year, creating a small surplus.

Finance Director Justin VanVooren was the person primarily responsible for the award. Village President Sean Michels thanked VanVooren for his diligent work in number crunching.

“It’s difficult to go through the budget line by line like we do, but it’s good to exercise transparency and be recognized for that,” Michels said.
