Mobile, Alabama was founded more than 300 years ago by the French and enjoys a rich and colorful history. Nearly 200,000 people live within its borders and 350,000 more live in the surrounding metropolitan area. The City of Mobile is a municipal agency responsible for providing fire, police, public works, parks, trash collection, and urban development services to residents.
The City takes its fiscal responsibility very seriously. It has always worked closely with its accountants and auditors to ensure compliance and best accounting practices. Recently, the City elected to take on the primary role of generating its complex financial statements and chose CaseWare® Working Papers and GAAP Financials as its tools in this initiative.
