City Receives Multiple Budget Awards
Posted on 03/01/2018
On February 27, 2018, the Council and StaffCity Council received awards for Excellence in Budgeting from both the Governmental Finance Officers Association (GFOA) and the California Society of Municipal Finance Officers (CSFMO) . To receive this award, the City budget was reviewed by multiple independent reviewers on more than 20 specific criteria and multiple budget categories.

Aside from the basic function of budgeting for planned revenues and expenses, budgets are a key communication tool to convey the City's priorities to our residents. The City Council has continued to prioritize making the City budget more accessible to the community, and the GFOA and CSFMO awards are benchmarks for developing budget documents that are more transparent and make city budgets more understandable.
