The Lake Alfred Finance Department is proud to serve its citizens by preparing an annual budget for the City.
Distinguished Budget Presentation Award
The City of Lake Alfred has received the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award for the City’s budget from the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) since 2007. The GFOA established the Distinguished Budget Presentation Awards Program (Budget Awards Program) in 1984 to encourage and assist state and local governments to prepare budget documents of the very highest quality and then to recognize individual governments that succeed in achieving that goal. This award is the highest form of recognition in government budgeting and represents a significant achievement by the City. It reflects the commitment of the City and staff to meeting the highest principles of government budgeting. In order to receive the award, the City had to satisfy nationally recognized guidelines for effective budget presentation including a policy document, financial plan, operations guide, and a communications device.
