The City of Woodinville has received the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award for the 2013-2014 Biennial Budget from the Government Finance Officers Association.
This award is the highest form of recognition in governmental budgeting and represents a significant achievement by the city.
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 an entity’s budget serves as:
• A policy document
• A financial plan
• An operations guide
• A communications device
Budget documents must be rated "proficient" in all four categories to receive the award.
