City Hall

On January 22, 2020, the City of Tehachapi received another award for the Finance Department from the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA). 

The GFOA notified Finance Director Hannah Chung her department had received the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award for the annual budget for fiscal year 2019-20. This award, considered the highest form of recognition in governmental budgeting according to the GFOA. 

"I am so happy that we received this award. It reflects the hard work of the Finance Department. We have been improving our budget for last few years with this award in mind. I am so glad that our efforts have finally paid off," said Hannah Chung Finance Director. 

In September of 2019, the Finance Department also received an Award of Excellence in Financial Reporting Achievement from the GFOA for the fiscal year 2017-18 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report. 

"Our Finance Department works tirelessly to maintain transparency of the public’s money and oversees a balanced budget each year; again I am so very proud of our team led by Director Hannah Chung," said Greg Garrett City Manager. 

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.
