We’re proud to have received the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award from the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA). The award, which recognized the City's Fiscal Year 2023 Budget document, is the highest form of recognition in governmental budgeting.
In order to receive the award, the City had to satisfy nationally recognized guidelines for effective budget presentation. The guidelines are
designed to assess how well the budget document serves as:
a policy document
a financial plan
an operations guide
a communications device
A panel of independent reviewers must rate budget documents as "proficient" in all four categories and in 14 mandatory criteria within those categories to be recognized.
The city is committed to excellence in business planning, financial reporting & presentation.
