Irving announces that for the fourth consecutive year it has earned the Gold Leadership Circle Award, the highest level a city can achieve, from the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts for outstanding financial transparency. The award was launched in 2009 to recognize local governments across Texas that meet a high level of online financial transparency by providing residents with a clear and consistent picture of spending in a user-friendly format. Irving is one of only five cities in the state to have earned a AAA bond rating from Standard and Poor’s and Moody’s. “Irving was one of the first cities to receive the Gold Leadership Circle Award, and now has done so for four years in a row,” Irving CFO Max Duplant said in a news release. “I appreciate the work the city staff has done in posting spending records to our web page and thus ensuring greater accountability to the city’s taxpayers.” More information about the Leadership Circle Award and Irving’s financial scorecard for the award can be found at
