CITY OF PEACHTREE CORNERS RECEIVES 6th STRAIGHT DISTINGUISHED BUDGET PRESENTATION AWARD FROM GFOA
PEACHTREE CORNERS, GA, March 15, 2023 - For the sixth year in a row, the City of Peachtree Corners has been esteemed with the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award. This award was presented by the Georgia Finance Officers Association for the City’s Fiscal Year 2023 budget submission.
The award represents a significant achievement by the entity. It reflects the commitment of the governing body and staff to meeting the highest principles of governmental budgeting. To receive the budget award, the entity had to satisfy nationally recognized guidelines for effective budget presentation. These guidelines are designed to assess how well an entity's budget serves as a:
- policy document
- financial plan
- operations guide
- communications device
“We are honored to once again receive this award as it reflects the City’s commitment to going above and beyond with our budget document,” said Cory Salley, City Finance Director. “I appreciate the support from the Mayor and City Council, the City Manager, and every member of the City staff. Without their support, this award would not be possible.”
When a Distinguished Budget Presentation Award is granted to an entity, a Certificate of Recognition for Budget Presentation is also presented to the individual(s) or department designated as being primarily responsible for having achieved the award.
There are over 1,700 participants in the Budget Awards Program. The most recent Budget Award recipients, along with their corresponding budget documents, are posted quarterly on GFOA's website. Award recipients have pioneered efforts to improve the quality of budgeting and provide an excellent example for other governments throughout North America.
Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) advances excellence in government finance by providing best practices, professional development, resources, and practical research for more than 21,000 members and the communities they serve.
