Not only did our City receive this prestigious Award, but our very own Finance Director, Janette Smith, was also recognized by the GFOA as being absolutely vital in this accomplishment. “This Award is a significant achievement and reflects the commitment of the governing body and staff to meeting the highest principles in governmental budgeting. Although a Certificate of Recognition was presented to me, please know that this document is truly a group effort as every division in the City is responsible for the presentation of their goals, measurements, achievements, organizational charts and budget. The Award could not have been received without the cooperation of all Department Directors, Assistant Directors and Senior Managers, the guidance of the City Manager’s office and the adoption of the Strategic Plan and leadership of the City Commission,” said Director Smith. Award recipients have forged efforts to improve the quality of government budgeting nationwide and set an excellent example for other governments all over North America.
