The Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) recently announced Santa Rosa County received the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award for its
fiscal year 2016-2017 budget
The award represents significant achievements reflecting the commitment of the board and staff to meet the highest principles of governmental budgeting. More than 1600 entries were submitted to the program to be judged on how well they serve as a policy document, financial plan, operations guide and communication device.
"For a numbers geek like me, I love seeing recognition like this come home to Santa Rosa. It shows we are delivering a better product every day," said Commission Chairman Rob Williamson, District Four.
The GFOA is a major professional association serving the needs of more than 19,000 appointed and elected local, state and provincial-level government officials and other finance practitioners.
