This is the 27th consecutive year the city's budget has received national recognition by earning the Government Finance Officer's Association (GFOA) Distinguished Budget Award. To receive the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award, a city must publish a budget document that serves as a policy document, a financial plan, a communications device, and an operations guide. We believe the fiscal year 2020 budget conforms to GFOA program requirements.
Additionally, this is the 22nd year an award of "Excellence in Budgeting" has been received from the California Society of Municipal Finance Officers (CSMFO). It should also be noted that the city’s Comprehensive Annual Financial Report has been an award-winning document for excellence in financial reporting at both the state and national levels for many years.
