Finance Department Receives Certificate of Achievement

Chicago, IL (January 13, 2022) – Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) has awarded the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting to Town of Trophy Club for its Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2020 (FY 20). The GFOA is a nonprofit professional association serving approximately 17,500 government finance professionals with offices in Chicago, Illinois, and Washington, D.C.

Each year the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) of the United States and Canada present a Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting to those governmental units whose annual financial reports are judged and adhere to program standards. In order to be awarded the Certificate of Achievement, a governmental unit must publish an easily readable and efficiently organized Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR), whose contents conform to program standards. Such reports should satisfy Generally Accepted Accounting Principles and applicable legal requirements. A Certificate of Achievement is valid for a period of one year only. 

The report has been judged by an impartial panel to meet the high standards of the program, which includes demonstrating a constructive "spirit of full disclosure" to clearly communicate its financial story and motivate potential users and user groups to read the report.

“We’re extremely proud of the Finance Departments tremendous accomplishment in receiving the Certificate of Achievement in Financial Reporting.  It’s the highest form of recognition in governmental accounting and financial reporting the Town can achieve,” said Town Manager Wade Carroll. “Our success is a testament to the Town’s commitment to financial transparency and to our Town employees who work tirelessly to ensure that our financial reporting conforms to the highest standard.”

The Town’s Finance Department is required to produce a CAFR to provide the public with a detailed account of the Trophy Club’s expenditures and its financial condition. Additionally, the financial statements undergo an independent audit and an auditor’s report is included in the financial section of the report for further transparency. The CAFR helps the Town establish financial transparency regarding the use of residents’ tax dollars and builds credibility with creditors and oversight agencies, which assists with securing bonds and other agreements.

The Certificate of Achievement is the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting, and its attainment represents a significant accomplishment by a government and its management.

Trophy Lakes Brick Wall Construction Project

Update November 10, 2021: Town staff has talked with the contractor working on the Trophy Lakes brick wall project after watching the impacts the construction has had on traffic thus far. 

It has been determined that while there is reasonable protection for the crews working along the 600 feet of lane closure, there IS an impact to drivers in that area particularly during the morning commute hours. As a result, the right lane closure times will be limited and will take place only between the hours of 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM to better accommodate traffic mobility. 

TC elementary schools currently begin at 7:40 AM with the majority of Southbound school traffic in that area generally over by 8:00 AM. The goal in delaying the right lane closure to 8:00 AM is to lessen the impact for morning commuters. This change should alleviate the feeling that students need to be dropped off earlier in order to arrive on time or before school is prepared for their arrival.  

As a reminder, this project is expected to last approximately 3 months. Traffic control devices will be picked up today by 5:00 PM. Staff will continue to monitor traffic / progress and make any necessary accommodations where possible to help mitigate concerns while the project is completed.

Thank you for your continued patience during this time, we again apologize for the inconvenience during this work. If you have any questions, please contact Kevin O'Dell at 682-237-2936.

Trophy Club Municipal Court Services Relocate to Roanoke

Trophy Club, TX (November 01, 2021) – In an effort to increase efficiency and  better utilize resources, Trophy Club will be outsourcing its municipal court operations to the City of Roanoke through a joint interlocal agreement……..Similar merges to combine court operations have taken place in other communities such as Colleyville and Keller. 

"The Trophy Club Municipal Court had seen approx. 700 – 800 citations per year, and could save about $30K with the creation of the joint court," Town Manager Wade Carroll said. “The key is to be efficient and cost-effective," he said. “Trophy Club didn’t have enough court activity to justify a full-time employee. 

For the convenience of TC residents, services will still be available online and over the phone. If a resident desires to speak to someone in person, it will require going to 609 Dallas Dr. Roanoke, TX 76262.

"We are doing this for the residents of both of our towns in order to hold the line on rising costs to operate,” Mayor Fleury said. “We are trying to give the people the same services they are used to without a change in taxes. To do that, we have to use every avenue at our disposal to save on costs.” 

About the transition:

"For Roanoke and Trophy Club, that date will be Nov. 1, 2021. Trophy Club will hold their first court docket under this joint venture on Tuesday November 9, 2021 at 609 Dallas, Dr Trophy Club, TX 76262", Carroll said.

Although the courts were combined effective Oct. 1, the decision and groundwork for combining the courts has been a work in progress for months.

"It's the behind-the-scenes details that's taken some time to work out, and in the last month or so, the two staffs have met to make certain that this is the right decision for both municipalities and that the processes and procedures are effective for both entities. When you consolidate these things, you've got to be sure all aspects of the operations fit together." Carroll said. "It's much more than just having people go to a different building it is important to me and our Council that our citizens receive the same level of service." 

How it works:

Roanoke Presiding Municipal Judge Greg Bertrand along with Associate Municipal Judges Alison J. Grant and Gilland Chenault were appointed judges in Trophy Club, along with Roanoke Prosecutor Caprice Garcia and will preside over Trophy Club cases brought before our court that will be held in Roanoke.

The agreement assures that Trophy Club Court Dockets will be held at least once a month just as they always have. Most interactions with the court system can be handled online through the website, or over the phone but if people wish to see a judge, Court will be held in Roanoke instead of Trophy Club Town Hall.   

However, if they want to pay off the ticket instead, they can pay online, over the phone, or in person at the municipal court at 609 Dallas Drive, Roanoke, TX 76262 or mail in a payment to the same address. 

Savings and cents:

Outsourcing our Court Operations allows Trophy Club to cut Court costs and improve Trophy Club’s fiscal position.
