Cleburne Receives Highest Recognition for Budgeting

Kevin Budget Award

The City of Cleburne received top recognition for its transparency in budgeting. The finance department received the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award, which is given by the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA).

According to GFOA, this award is the highest form of recognition in governmental budgeting. To earn the recognition, budget documents must meet program criteria and excel as a policy document, financial plan, operations guide and communication tool.

The award program, which was established in 1984, helps organizations prepare documents of the highest quality that reflect both the guidelines established by the National Advisory Council on State and Local Budgeting and the GFOA's best practices on budgeting.

“Financial transparency and being good stewards of taxpayer dollars is very important to us,” said Rhonda Daugherty, chief financial officer for the City of Cleburne. “This award is a reflection of the hard work that is always being done by our dedicated team to ensure that we are going above and beyond to keep track of how those dollars are being spent.”

Approximately 1,800 governments have been recognized for transparency in budgeting through the GFOA program. Learn more about the distinction here.
