Village Receives Distinguished Budget Presentation Award

The Village of Bellevue was recently notified by the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) on its receipt of the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award for our 2017 Fiscal Year Budget.

The award represents a significant achievement reflecting the commitment of the Village Board and staff to meeting the highest principles of governmental budgeting. Only approximately 1,600 entities nationwide receive this award.

In order to receive the award, the Village had to satisfy nationally recognized guidelines for effective budget presentation. Guidelines are designed to assess how well an entity's budget serves as:
  • a policy document
  • a financial plan
  • an operations guide
  • a communications device
Village financial and budget documents can be viewed on our Finance and Budget page of the Village's website.
