For the 22nd consecutive year, The Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) has given The Village of Wellington the GFOA’s Distinguished Budget Presentation Award.

A highly-coveted recognition, the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award symbolizes the dedication of the council and staff to fulfill the highest principles of governmental budgeting. This has truly been a remarkable achievement for The Village of Wellington. 

Qualifying for the award entails that the receiving local government has met the nationally recognized guidelines for effective budget presentation and documentation. These guidelines were set in place to measure how well the budgets of local governments serve as a policy document, a financial plan, an operations guide and a communications device.

To be eligible to receive the award, the budget documents submitted by the local governments must be given the “proficient” rating in the four categories as well as the 14 mandatory criteria within those categories.

Much needed preparation was needed in earning Wellington’s 22nd Distinguished Budget Presentation Award, and Wellington’s officials give well-deserved recognition to Budget & Reporting Director Christine Wadleigh and Budget Analyst Rubi Cabret for their diligent work and significant efforts to the body of work that allowed Wellington to earn this award once more.

Over 1,600 participants take part in the Budget Awards Program. The latest recipients of the award and their corresponding budget documents are published every quarter on the Government Finance Officers Association website.

Recipients of the award have laid the ground work for improving the quality of budgeting and documentation and have stood as exemplary role models for other governments throughout North America.

Wow that is really out of the norm... usually politicians think and act like all they need to do is print more money or better said reach into the Voter's pockets...Endre

Katerina that is an awesome achievement for the Village of Wellington. Don't we all wish all cities, states and feds would figure out how to balance their budget.
