City of Urbana Finance Department Receives Budget Award | Best Stories

URBANA, Ill. (WAND) – The City of Urbana received the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award from the Government Finance Officers Association for its budget.

The award “reflects the commitment of the governing body and staff to the highest principles of government budgeting”. In order to earn the budget award, the entity had to meet nationally recognized guidelines for effective budget presentation.

These guidelines assess the extent to which an entity’s budget is used to:

· a policy document

· a financial plan

· an operations guide

· a communication device

Budget documents must be deemed “competent” in all four categories and all fourteen mandatory criteria within those categories to receive the award.

When a Distinguished Budget Presentation Award is presented to an entity, a certificate of recognition for the budget presentation is also presented to the person(s) or department designated as primarily responsible for obtaining the award. This was presented to the City of Urbana Finance Department.

“The City wants to assure residents that we are working hard to support the community using best practices. This award reflects our commitment to better serve the community and demonstrates the dedication and hard work of our team. We would like to thank all city departments for their contributions and the important roles they play in our budget process,” said Alyana Robinson, City of Urbana Financial Analyst.

There are more than 1,700 participants in the budget scholarship program.
