Hueneme Earns Eighth Award

By Karen Robes Meeks

For the eighth straight year, the Port of Hueneme has earned a Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting.

The Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada awards its certificate to agencies whose Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) is considered outstanding.

“We are honored to accept this Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting for the eighth consecutive year,” said Mary Anne Rooney, Oxnard Harbor District President. “This award affirms our administration’s commitment to the highest standards of accurate and transparent reporting and continues to build community trust in the port.”

Port Deputy Executive Director and CFO Andrew Palomares credited the district staff’s hard work of readying the report for earning the recognition.

“It takes a team effort from all departments to put forth a comprehensive and complete CAFR,” he said. “This type of organization-wide effort is indicative of just how seriously the district takes the fiscal responsibility we have to the cities and communities within our boundaries. I am especially proud of the District’s Accounting Department who work all year long maintaining top-notch record keeping for the District.”
