GRANTS PASS – The City of Grants Pass is pleased to announce the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) has presented the city with the GFOA Distinguished Budget Presentation Award for its budget document for the current fiscal year. This is the 36th consecutive year the award has been presented to the City of Grants Pass.
“The strategic plan and budget processes are a success thanks to the collaborative efforts of citizens, city council members, city committees, and city staff,” said Finance Director Adam Shults.
In order to receive the budget award, Grants Pass had to satisfy nationally recognized guidelines for effective budget presentation. The award is considered the gold standard for government budgeting.
“This award represents a significant achievement by the city and reflects our commitment to meeting the highest principles of governmental budgeting,” said Shults.
The City of Grants Pass has a long history of following best practices in budget reporting and the requirements of GFOA’s budget award program. According to GFOA, only one other public agency in Oregon has a longer history of earning this award.
