City Receives Distinguished Budget Award
Posted on 03/02/2017

For the ninth consecutive year, the Cottonwood Heights Finance Department has been awarded the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award from the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA). The award was recently presented to Finance Director Dean Lundell.

The Distinguished Budget Presentation Award is the highest form of recognition in governmental budgeting. In order to be considered for the prize, Cottonwood Heights had to satisfy nationally recognized guidelines that assess how well the city’s budget serves as a policy document, a financial plan, an operations guide, and a communications device.

The Government Finance Officers Association is a nonprofit professional association serving government finance professionals throughout North America.  The GFOA’s budget awards program is the only national awards program in governmental budgeting.
