The City of Lauderhill’s Finance Department Receives the Highly Coveted, Distinguished Budget Award… Again
The City of Lauderhill’s Finance Department has been awarded the Government Finance Officers Association’s (GFOA) “Distinguished Budget Presentation Award” for the Fiscal Year Budget of 2014.
The GFOA’s Distinguished Budget Presentation Award is the only national awards program in governmental budgeting. The Association is a professional association that serves 18,000 finance government professionals in North America.
The GFOA explains that in order to receive this prestigious award the municipality had to, “… satisfy nationally recognized guidelines for effective budget presentation…. [in] how well the budget serves as a policy document, a financial plan, an operations guide, and a communications device.”
“The City of Lauderhill is no stranger to be honored by the GFOA. Most recently, we have received the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award for our budget in the fiscal years 2010, 2011, 2013 and now 2014! We should all be proud of the fantastic work our Finance Department is doing. This is the highest honor a government can receive for its budget preparation and presentation and gives confidence to our residents that the City is properly handling taxpayer dollars,” explains Mayor Richard J. Kaplan.
The City of Lauderhill Mayor and Commissioners will publicly thank the Finance Department under the auspices of the Assistant City Manager and Finance Director Kennie Hobbs, Jr. at the Commission Meeting on Monday, June 30, 2014. (5581 W. Oakland Park Blvd., Lauderhill, FL 33313)
