The City of Lake Worth received the Government Finance Officers Association’s Distinguished Budget Presentation Award. This award represents a significant achievement by the City and reflects the commitment of staff and elected officials to meeting the highest principles of governmental budgeting.
     This prestigious award tested the City’s budget against nationally recognized guidelines for effective budget presentation. To qualify for the award the City’s budget had to be rated “proficient” as a financial plan, policy document, operations guide and communications device. It also had to achieve a “proficient” rating in the fourteen mandatory criteria within those categories. Due to the hard work of the City Finance Department the City was able to meet these requirements.

“I want to express my appreciation to the Finance Director and her staff for receiving this recognition. This award is another indication that their professionalism and dedication to the City is keeping Lake Worth on track.”
—City Manager Michael Bornstein

Located in central Palm Beach County, Lake Worth is a dynamic, multi-cultural city with an individualistic style. People are drawn to the City by its acceptance of different cultures and lifestyles, historic districts, hip downtown and colorful arts district.
