PURCELLVILLE, Va. March 15, 2021 — The Town of Purcellville has received the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award from the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) for the Fiscal Year 2021 budget plan. The Town has received this prestigious award every year since Fiscal Year 2010. The Distinguished Budget Presentation Award is the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental budgeting, and its attainment represents a significant accomplishment by a government and its management. This award reflects the commitment of the Town Council and staff to meeting the highest principles of government budgeting. To receive this award, the Town had to satisfy nationally recognized guidelines for effective budget presentation. These guidelines are designed to assess how well the Town’s budget serves as a policy document, a financial plan, an operations guide and a communications device. More information about the Town of Purcellville’s budget document and process can be found online at www.purcellvilleva.gov/budget.
In addition, the GFOA presented the Town’s Finance Department with a Certificate of Recognition for Budget Presentation. The Director of Finance, Elizabeth Krens, would like to recognize Linda Jackson for her outstanding contribution to the Town’s budget document and process.
As a reminder to interested citizens and stakeholders, the Fiscal Year 2022 budget process will kick-off this week with Town Manager’s proposed budget presentation on Wednesday, March 17 at 7pm.
