TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

For the seventh consecutive year the Town of Marana Finance Department has been the recipient of a Distinguished Budget Presentation Award. 

The award, presented by the Government Finance Officers Association of the U.S. and Canada (GFOA), is for the Town's 2014 fiscal year budget and comprehensive financial plan. In order to receive this award Marana had to first publish a budget that met mandatory criteria in four categories - policy document, financial plan, operations guide and communications device. The document must also be rated 'proficient' in all four categories.

Marana also received special recognition for the performance measures section of its budget document.

"These types of awards would not be possible without the organization's commitment to excellence in budget reporting and the effort put forth by all levels of this organization," said Marana Finance Director Erik Montague, in the recent release.
