Oconee Finance staff recognized by award

Employees of the Oconee County government finance office are being recognized by a national professional organization that serves more than 19 thousand appointed and elected local, state, and provincial-level government officials and other finance practitioners. A portion of next week’s Oconee County Council meeting will be set aside for recognition of the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award from the Government Finance Officers Association. According to the Chicago-based organization, the award reflects the commitment of the governing body and staff to meet the highest principles of government budgeting. To attain the award, an entity had to satisfy nationally recognized guidelines for effective budget presentations.
