County wins award for budget book

Daily staff report

Work by Warren County's number crunchers to make the budget informative and easy to read has paid off again.

The county's financial plan for the current fiscal year recently received the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada Distinguished Budget Presentation Award. This marked the third year in a row the local government has received the association's recognition, according to a county press release.

County Administrator Douglas Stanley stated in the release the award comes as a result of the efforts of Finance Director Carolyn Stimmel and Senior Office Associate Shelley Hayes. Stanley notes that Stimmel worked extra hours to make sure the county budget book met certain criteria the organization requires in order to qualify for the award. Also, the county revamped the budget book several years ago to provide more information in a descriptive format for residents, Stanley states.

An association representative presented the award to the county at the Board of Supervisors meeting on Tuesday. Stimmel also received a certificate of recognition for the department designated as primarily responsible for the county's achievement.

Warren County is one of 1,328 government entities to receive the award for budgets including the 2011 fiscal period, according to a press release.

The organization gives the award to government entities that meet certain guidelines for how they present the budget. The guidelines assess how well a budget serves as a policy document, a financial plan, an operations guide and a communications device, according to a press release issued by the county.

The association is a nonprofit organization that serves more than 17,500 government finance professionals in North America.
