City's financial report on Web

Advertiser Staff

Honolulu has posted online the latest comprehensive annual financial report for the fiscal year that ended June 30.

City Budget and Fiscal Services Director Mary Pat Waterhouse said the report gave "an unqualified or clean opinion" on the city's financial statements.

"The financial statements indicate a strong financial performance and improved fiscal stability," Waterhouse said.

The accounting firm of Nishihama & Kishida, CPAs, Inc. did the report under the direction of city auditor Leslie Tanaka.
