Financial Reporting

Press Enter to show all options, press Tab go to next option

The City of Franklin produces numerous financial reports throughout the year. Many are ad hoc reports prepared for specific departmental needs and for internal controls. Many others are prepared for outside agencies, such as annual audits, monthly and quarterly budget reports, annual budgets, annual Capital Improvement Plan (CIP), grant compliance documentation, etc.

Annual Operating & Capital Budget

The annual budget is carefully prepared each year to outline the operating budget of the City for a twelve month period. Included in the budget are the personnel, operating, maintenance, debt service and capital outlay proposals for the year. The City of Franklin holds hearings each spring and approves the budget in ordinance form by the Board of Mayor and Aldermen. Follow this link to learn more about the budget and budget process.

Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR)

Also known as the annual audit report, this extensive report contains over 100 pages of the most meaningful data about a city’s financial condition. Prepared at the audit's conclusion, it is submitted annually to the State Comptroller for approval as well as to the Board of Mayor and Aldermen. It is also submitted to the Government Financial Officer’s Association for consideration of their annual award for financial reporting. With its FY 2017-2018 CAFR, the City of Franklin has received that award of distinction for twenty-eight (28) consecutive years.



Quarterly reports are prepared to monitor the financial transactions of the City versus the annual budget. These reports are delivered to all Board members and reviewed by the Budget and Finance Committee. Quarterly reports are prepared by staff and available approximately sixty (60) days after the end of the quarter.
