Capital Improvement Plan (CIP)
The Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) is a planning tool that forecasts the City’s capital needs over a five-year period based on City-adopted long-range plans, goals, and policies. The CIP includes detailed descriptions of every Capital Improvement Project the City anticipates to initiate during the five-year period. The CIP Is updated annually.
Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR)
The CAFR is prepared annually in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles. The City has been awarded “The Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting” every year since 1979 by the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada. 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 CAFR is prepared in conjunction with the City’s annual audit, which is performed each spring for the previous year. The 2016 CAFR is the most recent one available, and can be viewed at City Hall, the Hennepin County Library – Rockford Road Branch located at 6401 42nd Ave N. in Crystal, or online.
