Smith County received the 2015 Platinum Leadership Circle Award from the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts.
Smith County was named a Texas Comptroller Leadership Circle Platinum Member for the second year in a row for its “continued progress toward achieving financial transparency.”
The program recognizes local governments across the state that are striving to meet a high standard for financial transparency online.
Judge Joel Baker said it is the fifth year Smith County has been recognized with the Leadership Circle Award. The county received the top gold award for three years and last year, the bar was raised to platinum level.
