The Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) has awarded Hall County Government the GFOA's Distinguished Budget Presentation Award for its Fiscal Year 2019 budget.
“This is the third consecutive year Hall County has received this award. The Board of Commissioners and County staff continue to meet and exceed the highest standards of governmental budgeting,” said Zach Propes, Hall County Financial Services Director.
"This is truly a significant achievement that is representative of Hall County's dedication to responsible stewardship and fiscal transparency."
In order to receive the budget award, Hall County had to satisfy nationally recognized guidelines for effective budget presentation, assessing how well the budget serves as a policy document, financial plan, operations guide and communications device.
Budget documents must be rated "proficient" in all four categories and the fourteen mandatory criteria within those categories to receive the award.
“We are honored to once again be recognized for this achievement, which is a direct reflection of the hard work the Financial Services staff puts forth to lead our budget process on an annual basis,” said Jock Connell, Hall County Administrator.
