LITTLETON – Town Administrator Anthony M. Ansaldi Jr. is pleased to announce that the Town of Littleton has received the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award for its Fiscal Year 2022 operating budget.
Presented by the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA), the award is the highest form of recognition in governmental budgeting and represents a significant achievement by the Town of Littleton.
This is the first year the town has received the award.
“This is a great honor. Building a budget that meets the needs of the Town, while being clear and transparent to our community, takes countless hours,” Town Administrator Ansaldi said. “I would like to thank Director of Finance & Budget Aleesha Nunley-Benjamin and our entire financial team for their tireless work amid the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.”
To receive the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award, the Town of Littleton had to satisfy nationally recognized guidelines for effective budget presentation. The guidelines are designed to assess how well the Town’s budget serves as:
- A policy document
- A financial plan
- An operations guide
- A communications device
Budget documents had to be rated proficient in all four categories and in the 14 mandatory criteria within those categories.
