Tehachapi-Cummings County Water District extends streak of receiving prestigious award


August 19, 2023

For the 12th consecutive year, Tehachapi-Cummings County Water District has been awarded the prestigious "Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting" from the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA). "The Certificate of Achievement is the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting," according to the GFOA.

LaMinda (Mindy) Madenwald, Business Manager, has spearheaded the effort to continue the tradition of excellence in financial reporting that began with retired General Manager John Martin. Mindy has managed the preparation of the district's annual financial report since her hiring in 2016. The District has received unqualified ("clean") annual audits every year during her tenure, as well as the GFOA Certificate of Achievement.

Board of Directors President Robert W. Schultz said:

"As a member of the Board of Directors for TCCWD, I am quite proud of Mindy Madenwald. The GFOA's Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting is a testament to her dedication and skill in accounting. Reports such as these are an integral part of decision making and they assist in the smooth operation of the water district. We are actually quite blessed to have an entire staff that helps the board and keeps us informed, but financial reporting is most definitely key to planning and operations."

General Manager Tom Neisler added:

"Mindy sets the bar extremely high with her excellent work. She exemplifies the team effort demonstrated by all of Team TCCWD. Being chosen for this award is notable and the application and award process is rigorous. This uninterrupted, 12-year record of achievement demonstrates the district's commitment our core values of: ensuring the safety and well-being of Team Members, transparency and fiscal responsibility and accountability."
