For the 25th consecutive year, the City of Georgetown was given a Distinguished Budget Presentation Award from the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA). The award was presented to the Finance and Administration Department for the budget for the 2013/2014 fiscal year that ends September 30.
GFOA rates budget documents in four categories, including how well the budget serves as a policy document, a financial plan, an operations guide, and a communications device.
According to GFOA, “The award represents a significant achievement by the entity. It reflects the commitment of the government body and staff to meeting the highest principles of governmental budgeting. Award recipients have pioneered efforts to improve the quality of budgeting and provide an excellent example for other governments throughout North America.”
