An old adage says third time’s a charm but the city of Los Fresnos finance department keeps succeeding well beyond that.

Just recently, the city received yet another achievement award for outstanding excellence on financial reporting from the State Government Financial Officers Association.

It’s the seventh time the city receives such distinction.

And for Pablo A. Garza, the new director of finance, that is quite an honor.

“I feel great,” he said. “We had to submit all the paperwork in such a limited amount of time but we managed to beat the deadline.”

Garza, who took over the job last December, said he also credits city employees who helped him put everything together.

“We had to submit a comprehensive financial report of the city,” he said. “The people reviewing the documentation look at everything such as expenses and revenues.”

But Garza said his predecessors also deserved credit.

City Manager Mark Milum said the recognition means they are doing something right in the city.

“This is about transparency in city government,” he said. “We like to be conservative with everything we do here.”

And during Tuesday’s Nov. 13 meeting of the city commission, Garza’s work’s as finance director was recognized by the administrative body.
