Continuing our tradition of fiscal stewardship and excellence, for the second consecutive year, Pittsfield Charter Township was awarded, earlier this year, the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting by the Government Finance Officers Association of the United State and Canada (GFOA) for its FY 2011 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report.
The Certificate of Achievement is the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting, and its attainment represents a significant accomplishment by a government and its management.
The CAFR has been judged by an impartial panel to meet the high standards of the program including demonstrating a constructive “spirit of full disclosure” to clearly communicate its financial story and motivate potential users and user groups to read the CAFR.
As one of just three jurisdictions – and the only Township – in Washtenaw County to earn this prestigious designation, this award attests to our ongoing efforts to adhere to the highest standards of fiscal responsibility and stewardship.
This award follows other similar recognitions including a two-step bond upgrade by Standards & Poor in fall 2010, submission and acceptance of the Township’s second CAFR, and completion of a five-year financial forecasting model in fall 2011. [Press Release] [2011 CAFR]

After several years of sporadic cases, West Nile virus reappeared last summer as a threat. The hot, dry weather has been identified as a key factor for this increase in activity, as those conditions are favorable for the type of mosquitoes most likely to transmit the virus. Residents are encouraged to call the Washtenaw County West Nice Virus Information line at 734-544-6750 to report dead birds, view the fact sheets, and take the following personal protection measures in order to prevent West Nile virus infection:
View the press release or visit the Washtenaw County website for more information.
- Wear light-colored clothing, long sleeves, long pants, shoes and socks when outdoors, if possible.
- Wear insect repellent containing DEET, Picaridin/KBR 3012, Oil of Lemon Eucalyptus/PMD or IR3535 when outdoors - particularly at dawn and dusk, when mosquitoes are most active.
- Limit mosquito breeding sites by draining standing water in yards and around homes. Empty water from flower pots/saucers, clogged gutters, wading pools, swimming pool and patio furniture covers, discarded tires, buckets and other items that can collect water. Change the water in birdbaths, outdoor pet dishes and horse troughs at least two times a week.
- Repair screens and seal other openings in the home to prevent mosquitoes from entering.
