Town of Winter Park Receives Prestigious Budget Award

For the tenth consecutive year, the Town of Winter Park received the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award from the Government Finance Officer’s Association (GFOA) for the 2018 budget.

This award is the highest form of recognition in governmental budgeting and “reflects the commitment of the organization to meet the highest principles of governmental budgeting,” according to the GFOA.

Having a clear and well-organized budget document provides solid direction to achieve the goals and objectives set by the Town Council. In order to receive the budget award, the Town had to satisfy specific guidelines and prove that the Town’s budget serves as:

  • A policy document
  • A financial plan
  • An operations guide
  • A communications device

The budget document was rated “proficient” in all of these four categories, and in other mandatory criteria within those categories.

As reported by the GFOA, “award recipients have pioneered efforts to improve the quality of budgeting and provide an excellent example for other governments in North America.”
