The City of Westerville has earned the highest award in governmental budgeting for its Five-Year Financial Plan and Budget for fiscal years 2022-2026. In late May, the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) announced that the City earned the “Distinguished Budget Presentation Award” for the first time.

This achievement marks a budget document rated as a “proficient” policy document, financial plan, operations guide and communications device.

“The City’s longstanding commitment to careful and conservative planning and management of public dollars is a cornerstone to the trust we have built within the community,” said City Manager Monica Irelan. “We are extremely proud to have earned this recognition and grateful to our Finance Department for their rigorous adherence to industry best practices that led us to this achievement.”

Westerville is routinely recognized for excellence in financial management and planning practices and documentation.

For 37 consecutive years, GFOA has awarded Westerville the “Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting” for comprehensive annual financial reporting. Earned by less than 2% of the nation’s government entities, the award demonstrates a constructive spirit of financial disclosure to the community it serves.
