City of San Angelo

The City of San Angelo’s budget staff were recently recognized for their 2015-16 fiscal year budget from a national awards program in governmental budgeting.

Each year the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada, recognizes budget divisions around the US and Canada in a distinguished budget presentation awards program.

The City of San Angelo’s Finance Department and Budget Division has won the award several years in a row, and the GFOA says the award represents a significant achievement for the City.

The documents are assessed on how well the budget serves as a policy document, financial plan, an operations guide and a communication device.

According to GFOA the award reflects the commitment by the City Council and the Budget staff to meet the highest principles of government budgeting.
