Input sought on Durango budget
City awarded for budget, financial reporting

The city of Durango has received awards for budgeting and financial reporting by the Government Finance Officers Association for many years.
The association represents nearly 18,000 public finance officials throughout the U.S. and Canada. Its members are federal, state and local finance officials involved in planning, financing and implementing governmental operations in each of their administrations. The association’s mission is to identify, develop and advance fiscal strategies, policies and practices to benefit the public.
The city has won the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting for the last 30 consecutive years. The certificate was established in 1945 to encourage state and local governments to prepare comprehensive annual financial reports that shows the spirit of transparency and full disclosure and recognizes governments that achieve that goal.
The city has also won the Distinguished Budget Award for the past six consecutive years. The Distinguished Budget Presentation Awards Program encourages and assists state and local governments to prepare budget documents of the highest quality that reflect guidelines established by the National Advisory Council on State and Local Budgeting and the association’s best practices, and recognizes governments that achieve that goal.
