City Receives Financial Transparency Award

The city of West University Place has been awarded a Platinum Leadership Circle Award, for financial transparency, from the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts.

The annual award recognizes West U’s financial record-keeping and transparency in city accounting.

Finance Director Rhonda Daugherty of the city of West U was notified Monday about the award. She credited Debbie Pilcher, West U’s 2014 Employee of the Year, for helping the city prepare its application for the award.

The city received notice of the award from Ronald P. Gipson, in the Economic and Development Division in the office of State Comptroller Susan Combs. The city will be listed — with a platinum insignia — on the comptroller’s Texas Transparency website.
