The Atlanta Journal-Constitution - - COUNTY BY COUNTY - PAMELA MILLER FOR THE AJC

The Gov­ern­ment Fi­nance Of­fi­cers As­so­ci­a­tion re­cently an­nounced that the city of Chattahoochee Hills has re­ceived GFOA’s Dis­tin­guished Bud­get Pre­sen­ta­tion Award for its FY2019 Bud­get, ac­cord­ing to a press re­lease.

This award re­flects the com­mit­ment of the gov­ern­ing body and staff to meeting the high­est prin­ci­ples of gov­ern­men­tal bud­get­ing, said GFOA of­fi­cials. In or­der to re­ceive the bud­get award, the city had to sat­isfy na­tion­ally rec­og­nized guide­lines de­signed to as­sess how well the city’s bud­get serves as a pol­icy doc­u­ment, a fi­nan­cial plan, an op­er­a­tions guide and a com­mu­ni­ca­tion de­vice.

Bud­get doc­u­ments must be rated “pro­fi­cient” in all four cat­e­gories and in the 14 manda­tory cri­te­ria within those cat­e­gories to re­ceive the award.

There are over 1,600 par­tic­i­pants in the Bud­get Awards Pro­gram. The most re­cent Bud­get Award re­cip­i­ents, along with their cor­re­spond­ing bud­get doc­u­ments, are posted quar­terly on GFOA’s web­site.
