Guiding a Minnesota City Through the Pitfalls of Growth
Carver city leaders realized a more robust financial planning exercise was needed. They needed more than a spreadsheet—they needed to understand the city’s financials, as well as tax impacts to new rates and fees that came with growth and evolving expectations.
“Thanks to Abdo’s forward-thinking guidance and solutions, we feel prepared for the impending challenges of growth.”
—Brent Mareck, Carver City Manager
A behind-the-numbers view of best practices and holistic thinking.
Does thinking about creating your city’s annual budget cause a spike in your cortisol levels? If so, you’re not alone. But “budgeting” doesn’t have to be a bad word!
Your government audit takes place once a year so it can be tempting to only think about it, well, once a year. But preparing last-minute can increase your audit-related stress and keep your organization from being truly prepared.
I like their willingness to discuss challenges and provide good, thoughtful guidance.
Finance Director | City of Becker, Minnesota
The team makes it very easy for me to upload my data. They are well organized in their data requests and questions, which limits the amount of my time to complete the audit. We are an extremely small organization and don't have a dedicated finance/bookkeeper on staff, but they do a great job explaining what they need to someone who otherwise manages water quality improvement projects! I appreciate that they come directly to our Board to present the audit findings.
