Financial Reports

Monthly Financial Statements

With the implementation of Senate Bills 2142 and 2096, Florida's water management districts are making monthly financial statements publicly available to demonstrate how they are utilizing taxpayer dollars. To further increase transparency, the District will provide monthly statements to the SFWMD Governing Board at its regular business meetings.

Budget Amendments

In accordance with 189.418(7) F.S. "...the adopted amendment must be posted on the official website of the special district within 5 days after adoption".

Comprehensive Annual Financial Report

Each year, the District prepares a Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR). The CAFR provides a wealth of information, including audited financial statements, an overview of the agency including its background, general operations, geographical boundaries and regulatory powers. In addition, the CAFR provides details about major initiatives, the economic outlook, financial policies and statistics about property tax revenue by county, principal property taxpayers, demographics and much more.
