Middletown Township Awarded the Distinguished Budget Award

Jump to calendar

Middletown Township was awarded the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award by the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) for its 2023 Budget for the fifth consecutive year. Out of nearly 3,000 municipalities and governmental authorities in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, the Township is one of fewer than two dozen governmental bodies in Pennsylvania to earn this achievement in 2023.
 
Of the nearly 89,000 units of local government in the United States, the GFOA Distinguished Budget Presentation Award is earned by less than 1% of governmental agencies.
 
In order to receive this award, the Township had to satisfy nationally-recognized guidelines for effective budget presentation.  These guidelines are designed to assess the Township’s ability for its budget to serve as a policy, financial planning, operations, and communications device.  The Township’s budget features financial analysis and contextual information, making it clear to staff and the community at large how funds are being earned and disbursed, and why.
 
The Township is also an 19-time winner of the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting Program. The Township is one of less than 70 municipalities in Pennsylvania to win this award.

Middletown Township is receiving this award for the fifth consecutive year in a row. The 2024 Budget will be prepared in accordance with GFOA's criteria and will be submitted upon final adoption by the Board of Supervisors in December.
