City receives Distinguished Budget Presentation Award

The Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada recently awarded the City of League City with a Distinguished Budget Presentation Award.

The award is the highest form of recognition in governmental budgeting and represents a significant achievement by League City.

“This is the eighth consecutive award received by the City,” said Rebecca Underhill, Assistant City Manager and Finance Director. “Our finance team is committed to developing a sound budget process that meets the needs of the City and demonstrates the City’s strong commitment to financial planning and transparency.”

League City’s budget presentation had to meet four nationally recognized guidelines to receive the award. The guidelines assessed how the City’s budget served as a policy document, a financial plan, an operations guide, and a communications device. Each guideline had to receive a rating of ‘proficient’ to achieve the award.

“The annual budget adopted by City Council communicates the City’s vision for the upcoming year,” said Angie Steelman, Budget and Financial Planning Manager. “The budget process is long, yet crucial in setting the tone for our operations throughout the year. We continuously strive to maintain the high standards set in place in preparing the document and are honored to receive the GFOA Distinguished Budget Presentation Award.”

Steelman was also presented a Certificate of Recognition for Budget Presentation as the individual primarily responsible for the city achieving this award.

The Government Finance Officers Association is a major professional association servicing the needs of nearly 19,000 appointed and elected local, state, and provincial-level government officials and other finance practitioners. The association is headquartered in Chicago, Illinois, with offices in Washington D.C.
