BUDGET PRESENTATION AWARD
Maryville, MO – The Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) is pleased to announce that the City of Maryville, Missouri has received the GFOA’s Distinguished Budget Presentation Award for its FY 2016 Budget.
The award represents a significant achievement by the entity. It reflects the commitment of the governing body and staff to meet the highest principles of governmental budgeting. In order to receive the award, the entity had to satisfy nationally recognized guidelines for effective budget presentation. These guidelines are designed to assess how well an entity’s budget serves as:
· A policy document
· A financial plan
· An operations guide
· A communications device
Budget documents must be rated “proficient” in all four categories, and the fourteen mandatory criteria within those categories, to receive the award.
When a Distinguished Budget Presentation Award is granted to an entity, a Certificate of Recognition for Budget Presentation is also presented to the individual or department designated as being primarily responsible for its having achieved the award. This has been presented to Greg McDanel, City Manager, and Denise Town, Finance Director.
The Government Finance Officers Association is a nonprofit professional association serving nearly 18,300 government finance professionals throughout North America. The GFOA’s Distinguished Budget Presentation Awards Program is the only national awards program in governmental budgeting.
The announcement marks the City of Maryville’s third consecutive GFOA’s Distinguished Budget Presentation Award. The FY 2016 Budget Document can be found at:
