For the past 18 years the Halifax County Finance Department has been awarded the Certificate of Achievement of Excellence in Financial Reporting.

This year, Finance Director Mary Duncan told the board of commissioners today, was the first time the department received proficient marks in every category.
The grading category covers 17 areas, according to information contained in the agenda packet.
The award is presented by the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada and was presented to the county for its comprehensive annual financial report, according to a news release contained in the packet.
Benita Demery, director of financial services for the city of Greenville, presented the finance department with the certificate.
“We have an amazing staff,” Duncan said. “I cannot do this without them.”
