City Receives Top Honors for its 2021 Budget

Westminster’s council-manager form of government is consistently recognized for excellence in management and delivery of full services to businesses and residents. Now its approach to budgeting is getting national attention.

The City of Westminster, CO has been awarded the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award by the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA), for its 2021 Budget. This was the first time the Policy & Budget Department submitted a budget for review by GFOA.

This award is the highest form of recognition in governmental budgeting and its attainment represents a significant achievement by the City. It reflects the commitment of the governing body and staff to meeting the highest principles of governmental budgeting.

In order to receive the budget award, the City had to satisfy nationally recognized guidelines for effective budget presentation. The City’s budget document excels as a policy document, financial plan, operations guide, and communication tool.
