LaSalle Receives Distinguished Budget Presentation Award for Fifth Year

Posted on Wednesday January 13, 2021

The Town of LaSalle is the proud recipient of the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) Distinguished Budget Presentation Award for the Town’s annual budget document for the fiscal year beginning January 1, 2020.

“This is the fifth year in a row that LaSalle has received an award for our annual budget document. Our administrative team puts a lot of work into the document, and we are pleased to be recognized for this achievement,” said Mayor Marc Bondy. 

In order to receive this award, a governmental unit must publish a budget document that meets program criteria as a policy document, as a financial plan, as an operations guide, and as a communications device. Budget documents must be rated "proficient" in all four categories, and in the fourteen mandatory criteria within those categories, to receive the award. The Town's budget document can be viewed on the Finance webpage.

“This award reflects the commitment of the Town’s Finance Department and administrative team to meet the highest principles of governmental budgeting. A Certificate of Recognition for Budget Presentation was presented to the Finance Department during the 2021 budgeting sessions in December,” said Joe Milicia, CAO.

There are over 1,600 participants in the Budget Awards Program. The most recent Budget Award recipients, along with their corresponding budget documents, are posted quarterly on GFOA's website. Award recipients have pioneered efforts to improve the quality of budgeting and provide an excellent example for other governments throughout North America.
