Every year an auditor certifies that the city financial statements meet the requirements of generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and the Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB). An auditor can have an unqualified opinion, in which he or she agrees with how the city’s prepared the statements, or a qualified opinion, in which he or she states which aspects of the company’s statements he or she does not agree with.

The Capital Improvements Program (CIP) identifies needed investments to capital facilities and equipment maintained by the City of Whitefish over the next five years.
The CIP is not an appropriation or approval of a specific project, but rather a planning document that communicates to citizens and the development community the City’s intent to preserve, improve and expand facilities. To effectively respond to changing circumstances and economic factors, the CIP must be a flexible plan.
