Town of Clayton Water Tower at Sunset
Welcome the Town of Clayton, North Carolina

We’ve done it again! Clayton's Finance Department has won the industry's highest award for the 17th year in a row.

Awards hanging on the wall​The Department's Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) for last fiscal year has been awarded a "Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting" by the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States (GFOA). It's the organization's top honor and the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting. It represents a significant accomplishment by the Town and its management. The previous 16 reports won the high honor, too.

The CAFR is produced to provide the Mayor, Town Council, Town staff, residents, bondholders and the general public with useful information about the Town of Clayton's operations and financial position. We go well above and beyond the minimum accounting standards to make sure the work of our town is transparent and fully disclosed to taxpayers.

"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," the Association said in a statement announcing the honor.

Clayton Finance Director Robert McKie has helped Clayton take home the award for nine-straight years! 

"For me, the award is an accolade that represents a great accomplishment," said McKie, who has taken home the award for nine straight years!
