Finance Department

The City’s Finance Department consists of three Divisions:

Annual Operating Budget

Per Ohio Revised Code, the Finance Department creates an annual operating budget for the City of Franklin that must be approved by City Council.  The budget is monitored and adjusted as necessary throughout the year.  The annual budget document includes a financial summary for the prior year, a detailed budget for the current year, and the City's 5-Year Capital Improvement Plan.

Annual Report

At the end of each fiscal year, the Finance Director prepares a Annual Comprehensive Financial Report that is audited by an independent accounting firm. Since 1989, the Government Finance Officers Association has awarded the City of Franklin a “Certificate of Achievement of Excellence in Financial Reporting” for its yearly Annual Report. This prestigious award is presented to those governmental entities whose Annual Report's achieve the highest standards in government accounting and financial reporting. The Finance Director also prepares the Popular Annual Financial Report. This document is a a summary of the City's financial details that's designed to be easy for the public to understand.
