The Hall County government has received a national award for the current fiscal year’s budget.
The county received the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award from the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada. The budget was evaluated for how well it served as a policy document, financial plan, operations guide and communication device. In order to receive the award, the county had to be rated “proficient” in all four categories.
"This is the third consecutive year Hall County has received this award. The Board of Commissioners and County staff continue to meet and exceed the highest standards of governmental budgeting," Zach Propes, the county’s financial services director, said in a statement.
The current fiscal year’s budget is available on the Hall County website. The next fiscal year will begin July 1.
