“Checks and Balances” for Palm Beach County Clerk and Comptroller

“Checks & Balances: Your Guide to County Finances,” which is also called a “Popular Annual Financial Report” (PAFR), includes condensed and simplified information from the CAFR, County budget and other financial reports. This guide is a recommended practice of the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA), the authority on best practices in governmental accounting and financial reporting.

The PAFR design for the FY ended September 30, 2012 report was conceived to have a strong, clean dynamic presence. It is meant to present the information in an easy-to-access format, while offering an expression of the tropical flavor of Palm Beach County.
