This is the 23rd consecutive year the city's budget has received national recognition by earning the Government Finance Officer's Association (GFOA) Distinguished Budget Award, a copy of which appears on this page to the right. 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 2016 budget conforms to GFOA program requirements.
Additionally, this is the 18th year an award of "Excellence in Budgeting" has been received from the California Society of Municipal Finance Officers (CSMFO).  Copies of this award appears on this page to the right. 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.
