Chicago--The Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) is pleased to announce that City of Dinuba, California has received the GFOA's Distinguished Budget Presentation Award for its budget.
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. In order 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
- a financial plan
- an operations guide
- a communications device
Budget documents must be rated "proficient" in all four categories, and the fourteen mandatory criteria within those categories, to receive the award. When a Distinguished Budget Presentation Award is granted to an entity, a Certificate of Recognition for Budget Presentation is also presented to the individual or department designated as being primarily responsible for its having achieved the award. This has been presented to Cass Cook, Financial Services Director.
The City of Dinuba is committed to promoting health and safety while also improving the quality of life of its residents. The construction of adequate pedestrian facilities (i.e. sidewalks, curbs and gutters) is one way of working towards that goal. With that in mind, the City Council has directed that the Sidewalk Improvement Program be reinstated effective fiscal year 2013-14. A one-time allocation of $50,000 will be deposited into a revolving fund that will be disbursed pursuant to the guidelines established below.
