Clayton County Water Authority earns national award

The Clayton County Water Authority’s Finance Department recently received the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada Distinguished Budget Presentation Award, according to a press release.

This is the Authority’s 13th GFOA Distinguished Budget Award. The award includes Special Distinction for Presentation of Performance Measures. This is the third time CCWA has received Special Distinction for this category. Special Distinction is awarded for excellence in the reporting of one of two primary topics: Performance Measures and Capital.

“This award is the highest form of recognition for our finance staff,” adds H. Bernard Franks, CCWA General Manager. “It reflects their commitment to being good stewards of our financial resources and their commitment to the highest standards of governmental budgeting.”

GFOA established the Distinguished Budget Presentation Awards Program in 1984 to encourage and assist state and local governments to prepare budget documents of the very highest quality that reflect both the guidelines established by the National Advisory Council on State and Local Budgeting and the GFOA’s best practices on budgeting and then to recognize individual governments that succeed in achieving that goal.
