The City of Friendswood has been awarded the Government Finance Officers Association’s Distinguished Budget Presentation Award. Of the 90,000 governmental entities in North America, only approximately 1,600 meet the awards standards. This is the seventeenth consecutive year Friendswood has been honored. It was announced at the July City Council meeting.
In order to receive the budget award, the City had to satisfy nationally recognized guidelines for effective budget presentation. Budget documents must be rated “proficient” by serving as a policy document, a financial plan, an operations guide, and a communications device.
