For the 25th consecutive year, the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) presented the City with its Distinguished Budget Presentation Award for the City’s 2020-2021 Fiscal Year budget.

In order to receive this award, the City had to satisfy nationally-recognized guidelines for an effective budget presentation. These guidelines were designed to determine how well the City’s budget served as a policy document, operations guide, financial plan, and communications tool.

With more than 19,500 municipalities in the United States, only 1,158 received this budget award last year, including Bedford. Congratulations to the Bedford Finance staff! For more information about the budget, please visit
