S’thorne wins distinguished budget presentation award


The Silverthorne Town Council recently recognized finance director Donna Braun and her staff for receiving the distinguished budget presentation award from the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA). Silverthorne received this honor for the eighth consecutive two-year budget cycle. The most recent award recognizes the town’s 2009/2010 biennial budget.

“All of our financial documents are critical tools we use to chart our financial path, and also to clearly communicate our plans with the public,” said town manager Kevin Batchelder. “The budget is the cornerstone of our financial strategy, and although we have simply come to look forward to Donna and her staff bringing this award home for each budget, in no way does that diminish the significance of this accomplishment.”

In order to receive the award, Silverthorne had to satisfy all of the nationally recognized guidelines for effective budget presentation. These guidelines require that the town’s budget meet 14 mandatory criteria. Silverthorne’s award provides recognition that the town budget serves as an effective policy document, financial plan, operations guide and communications device.

The 2009/2010 Silverthorne town budget is available at http://www.silverthorne.org and copies are also available at Town Hall, 601 Center Circle.
