CITY OF BUDA RECEIVES PRESTIGIOUS BUDGET PRESENTATION AWARDFOR SECOND CONSECUTIVE YEAR
For the second consecutive year, the City of Buda has received the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) Distinguished Buda Presentation Award for the Fiscal Year 2018-2019 budget.
The prestigious award reflects the commitment of staff to meeting the highest principles of governmental budgeting.
“It is an honor to be awarded this budget presentation award for our budget document,” said Finance Director June Ellis. “It is a testament to all of the hard work required to assemble a budget document that meets the criteria established by the GFOA.”
In order to receive the budget award, the City had to satisfy nationally recognized guidelines for effective budget presentation. The guidelines are designed to evaluate how well an entity’s budget serves as:
· a policy document
· a financial plan
· an operations guide
· a communications device
“I am proud of Finance Director June Ellis and his entire team for their continued dedication and hard work,” said City Manager Kenneth Williams. “Being recognized for the second year in a row by the Government Finance Officers Association is a tremendous honor. It is a testament to the entire finance team and quality budget practices the City of Buda has in place.”
The City’s budget documents had to achieve a “proficient” rating in all four categories to receive the award. The GFOA presented a Certificate of Recognition for Budget Presentation to Finance Director June Ellis.
