The Town of Leesburg has received the Government Finance Officers Association's Distinguished Budget Presentation Award for its fiscal 2014 budget. This is the 29th straight year Leesburg has received this honor.
The GFOA Distinguished Budget Presentation Award recognizes organizations that fulfill the highest standards of governmental budgeting. Recipients must meet nationally recognized guidelines, which assess the budget's ability as a policy document, a financial plan, an operations guide and a communications device. Budget documents must receive proficient ratings in all four categories and in the 14 criteria within those categories to be eligible for the award.
The award was presented to the Town of Leesburg Finance Department.
“Having received this award for so many years in a row, one might think we take it for granted,” said Town Manager John Wells. “But nothing could be further from the truth. The budget staff works very hard each year to improve upon last year’s budget document."
