For the seventh consecutive year, the City of Branson, municipal government, has received the Government Finance Officers Association’s (GFOA) Distinguished Budget Presentation Award for its budget. The award reflects the commitment of the Finance Department and staff to meeting the highest principles of governmental budgeting.

In order to receive the budget award, the organizations 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 and a communications device.

There are four areas and more than 20 criteria upon which the document is rated.

In order to receive the award, budgets must be rated “proficient” in all four categories, and the mandatory criteria within those categories in order to receive the award.

For more on the GFOA and the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award, visit the GFOA’s website. For more on the City’s finances and to view the current budget, go to the Finance Department’s section of the City’s website, BransonMo.Gov.
