City Recognized by GFOA for Meeting Highest Principles of Government Budgeting

The City of Twin Falls has been awarded the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award by the Government Finance Officers Association, GFOA, for achieving the highest principles of government budgeting.

This is the fourth consecutive year the city has been selected by GFOA for ensuring that the organization’s budget not only serves as a financial document, but also an operations guide and communication device for both the organization and public.

The city’s Finance Department spends substantial time drafting a budget, which is then reviewed and audited by the GFOA based on nationally recognized guidelines for excellence.

“The Distinguished Budget Presentation Award is like a report card for our budget document,” said Lorie Race, City of Twin Falls CFO. “It shows our commitment to following established guidelines and best practices in municipal government budgeting.”

The Government Finance Officers Association, headquartered in Chicago, Illinois, is a professional association servicing the needs of 18,300 appointed and elected local, state, and provincial-level government officials. It provides training to enhance the skills and performance of those responsible for government finance policy.
