Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting

The Park District’s Fiscal Year 2015-2016 Annual Budget won the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award. This was the 6th year the Park District received the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award. The Park District first applied for the award in 2010 with the Fiscal Year 2010 – 2011 Annual Budget. The GFOA established the Distinguished Budget Presentation Awards Program (Budget 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. Documents submitted to the Budget Awards Program are reviewed by selected members of the GFOA professional staff and by outside reviewers with experience in public-sector budgeting.

GFOA Budget Presentation Award

Gurnee Park District is pleased to announce that it has received the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada’s (GFOA) Distinguished Budget Presentation Award for its current year budget for the sixth consecutive year in a row. The award represents a significant achievement by a government entity. It reflects commitment of the governing body and staff to meeting the highest principles of governmental budgeting. In order to receive the budget award, the entity had to satisfy nationally recognized guidelines for effective budget presentation. These guidelines are designed to assess how well an entity’s budget serves as a policy document, financial plan, operations guideline and communications device. Budget documents must be rated proficient in all four categories, and in the fourteen mandatory criteria within those categories to receive the award.
