For the eighth consecutive year, the city of Columbia has earned the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award from the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada.

The GFOA also awarded the city a certificate of achievement for excellence in financial reporting. City Finance Director Lori Fleming said the city has received that award more than 20 years in a row.

“We’re really proud that we’re able to provide a budget to our citizens that actually means something to them,” she said.

About 40 city governments in Missouri received the budget presentation award in 2004; about 75 earned the financial reporting certificate.

Fleming said the city’s award applications are reviewed by officials from three other cities, all of which are kept secret and rotate annually.
