             (Thurs., Aug. 19, 2010)—Acting Mayor Kirk Caldwell today announced that the City and County of Honolulu has been awarded the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award from the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA).


“This award validates our commitment to accuracy and transparency in reporting the City’s financial information,” Caldwell said.


The award was based on how well the City’s budget served as a policy document, financial plan, operations guide and communications tool.  The budget had to be highly rated in all four categories to be recognized.


“The hard work of our City employees who are committed to meeting the highest principles of governmental budgeting are clearly reflected in this prestigious award,” Caldwell said.


The City’s operating and capital budgets for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2011 are available on the City’s website at:
