ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

Johnson County has been awarded the national Distinguished Budget Presentation Award by the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) for the fourth consecutive year.

The award, which is the highest form of recognition in governmental budgeting, recognizes the county’s fiscal year 2019 budget, which took effect July 1.

According to the GFOA, the award represents a significant achievement by Johnson County and reflects a commitment to meeting the highest principles of governmental budgeting.

To receive the award, the county had to satisfy nationally recognized guidelines for effective budget presentation. The guidelines assess how well the budget serves as a policy document, a financial plan, an operations guide and a communications device.

Budget documents must be highly rated in all four categories, as well as the 14 mandatory criteria within those categories, to receive the award.

“This award recognizes the county’s commitment to excellence in budgeting; we strive every year to keep our annual budgeting process as open and transparent as we possibly can,” said Finance Director Dana Aschenbrenner. “We continue to try and engage our local communities and constituents to become active participants in the discussions of the county’s budget priorities and strategic goals.”

A copy of the county’s fiscal year 2019 budget is available at www.johnson-county.com/dept_finance.aspx?id=15283.
