The Accounting Division compiles the City’s Comprehensive
Annual Financial Report (CAFR), working closely with Finance Administration.
The CAFR includes the City of Lakewood financial statements and complies with
Charter, generally accepted accounting principles and the Governmental Accounting
Standards Board (GASB). The financial statements are externally audited by
Swanhorst & Company LLC. The data contained in the reports are for
historical reference only. The information contained is not updated for
development subsequent to the date of the independent auditor’s report.
The CAFRs are also available in hard copy for viewing at the City Clerk's Office and at the
County Libraries located in Lakewood, Colo.
The Finance Administration
Division generates the General
Fund Quarterly Revenue and Expenditure Report, comparing year-to-date
actuals to budget and to prior year. This report is updated and replaced each
month with the most recent information.
Lakewood Ledger is the
City's online tool for residents to better understand how Lakewood spends
taxpayer funds. The tool allows viewers to search the City's spending accounts
by expense type, department, fund and by vendor name. It includes payments
made through procurement cards that function like credit cards, accounts
payable vouchers and other payment methods.
