Sumner does a lot of things well, and a budget becomes one of the most difficult challenges of all. How do you easily package so many different funds and complex government accounting so that anyone can easily find what’s happening with your money? Apparently, we had an answer with the 2018-2019 Biennial Budget.

The national Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) just honored Sumner’s budget with the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award. One reviewer commented to us: “Outstanding. You produced a very dynamic and vibrant document that is easy to read and understand. No small feat for a city that provides a vast array of services that you do. Kudos on a job well done!”
