Financial Reporting and Accolades

Citizens' Financial Report

Reading audited financial statements can be a daunting task. The Citizens' Financial Report is designed to provide operational and financial information on the Town in a more user-friendly format. It is not an audited document, nor does it include all details of the audit report; rather, this report is intended to increase awareness of the financial operations of Knightdale. Printed copies of the current Citizens' Financial Report are available in the Finance Department at Town Hall.
