The Town of Woodbridge recently earned the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award from the national nonprofit Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA).
This award is in addition to the Audit Award also received by the Town earlier this year.
“This award is the highest form of recognition in governmental budgeting and represents a significant achievement by your organization,” states the letter from GFOA announcing the award.
In order to earn the budget award the Town’s Finance Department and Board of Finance met nationally recognized guidelines for effective budget presentation. The guidelines assess how well the budget serves as a policy document, a financial plan, an operations guide and a communications device.
The certificate of recognition was presented to the Town’s Director of Finance, Tony Genovese.
“The Town of Woodbridge consistently earns this award, thanks to the hard work of our talented Director of Finance and our expert Board of Finance,” said First Selectman Beth Heller.
Board of Finance Chair Matthew Giglietti added, “I’m proud that, year after year, the Town’s budget document is recognized for being a strong tool that helps residents understand how their tax dollars are spent.”
The Town is starting the process of creating the 2018-19 budget.
