I am very pleased to announce that the City of Brentwood has received the following awards:

  • Distinguished Budget Presentation Award from the Government Finance Officer’s Association for the 2003/04 – 2005/06 Operating Budget (National Award).

  • Excellence in Budgeting Award from the California Society of Municipal Finance Officers for the 2003/04 - 2005/06 Operating Budget (State Award).

  • Excellence in Budgeting Award from the California Society of Municipal Finance Officers for the 2003/04 - 2007/08 Capital Improvement Program Budget (State Award).

  • Excellence in Budgeting Award from the California Society of Municipal Finance Officers for the Comprehensive Annual Financial Review for Fiscal Year Ending 2003 (State Award).

These Budget Award Programs are designed to recognize those agencies whose budget documents and communications documents meet certain state-wide standards considered to be of the highest quality.

These awards represent a significant achievement by the City, particularly since the City has never won all four awards in the same fiscal year. The last award achieved by the City for the Operating Budget was received in 1997.

The last award achieved by the City for the Capital Budget was received in 1999. The criteria for this award have become increasingly stringent and for the past five years we have fallen just short of meeting these requirements. Statewide, however, our budget has now become recognized as the document to emulate!

This is the third consecutive award received for the CAFR, since its inception in 2001.

This achievement is even more noteworthy in the fact that this is the first time in the City’s history that we have won every award for our financial documents that we applied for. I am proud to say that these award-winning documents reflect the City's commitment to meet the highest principles of governmental budgeting.
