Goodyear Earns Distinguished Budget Presentation Award

 

 

(GOODYEAR, AZ) - The City of Goodyear has received the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) Distinguished Budget Presentation Award for its budget. This is the ninth time the City of Goodyear has won the award.

 

The award represents a significant achievement by Goodyear. It reflects the commitment of the City Council and staff to meeting the highest principles of governmental budgeting. In order to receive the budget award, the City had to satisfy nationally recognized guidelines for effective budget presentation. These guidelines are designed to assess how well a governing entity's budget serves as a policy document, a financial plan, an operations guide and a communications device. The efforts by the City of Goodyear serve to improve the quality of budgeting and provide an excellent example for other governments.

 

The GFOA presented a Certificate of Recognition for Budget Presentation to Joe Pizzillo, Budget and Research Manager and Barb Huttinger, Management Analyst for the City of Goodyear.

 

The Government Finance Officers Association is a non-profit professional association serving 16,800 government finance professionals throughout North America. The GFOA's Distinguished Budget Presentation Awards Program is the only national awards program in governmental budgeting.
