Budget Award
The Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) presented a Distinguished Budget Presentation Award to City of Highland Park, Illinois for it's annual budget for the fiscal year beginning January 1, 2019. 

In order to receive this award, the City has to satisfy nationally recognized guidelines for effective budget presentation. These guidelines are designed to assess how well an entity’s budget serves as a policy document, financial plan, an operations guide, and a communications device.

This award is valid for a period of one year only. We believe our current budget continues to conform to program requirements, and we are submitting it to GFOA to determine its eligibility for another award.

The City of Highland Park has received this award for the last twenty-five years.
