On January 26, 2021, the City of Tehachapi Finance Department was advised they had received the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award from the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) for the second consecutive year.

The GFOA notified Finance Director Hannah Chung her department had received the honor for the annual budget for fiscal year 2020-21. This award is considered the highest form of recognition in governmental budgeting according to the GFOA.

“The City of Tehachapi is very fortunate to have an exceptional finance team that continues to receive outstanding recognition from GFOA. The Finance Department reflects highly on our community for their dedication to maintaining the highest standards for financial accounting practices. On behalf of the entire community, I want to congratulate everyone in our Finance Department for this very important recognition from GFOA,” said Tehachapi Mayor Phil Smith.

This is the fourth award the City of Tehachapi Finance Department has received from GFOA in the past two years and the second consecutive Distinguished Budget Presentation Award.

GFOA established the Distinguished Budget Presentation Awards Program in 1984 to encourage and assist state and local governments to prepare budget documents of the very highest quality. That they reflect both the guidelines established by the National Advisory Council on State and Local Budgeting and the GFOA’s best practices on budgeting and then to recognize individual governments that succeed in achieving that goal.
