Douglas county wins national budget award

For the 13th year, Douglas County has been awarded the distinguished budget presentation award from the Government Finance Officers Association in Chicago.

County Comptroller Claudette Springmeyer told commissioners April 1 the award was a team effort.

“I always have to start with (County Manager) Michael Brown,” she said. “He laid out the framework in 1997.”

Springmeyer also thanked management analyst Heather Field and human resources technician Vicky Galloway for their assistance.

“I appreciate all their hard work,” she said.

To receive the award Douglas County had to rate proficient in four categories and 14 criteria. Categories include: Policy document, financial plan, operations guide and communications device.

Springmeyer and Brown received a certificate of recognition from the association.

Douglas County was one of 1,214 agencies receiving the award for fiscal 2009.

The association is a nonprofit agency serving more than 17,600 government finance professionals in the United States and Canada.
