Financial Transparency

METRO’s commitment to financial transparency goes beyond monthly Board/Committee meetings and is reflected by the type, quality and location of financial information, including awards, reported on METRO’s Web page. Financial reporting awards include the certificate of achievement for excellence in financial reporting for METRO’s comprehensive annual financial report for 24 consecutive years and five consecutive years for METRO’s two defined benefit pension plans. In addition, METRO has earned the highest grade available from the Texas Controller Leadership Circle program on transparency for the past six years.
