Bibb receives finance award

Bibb County again has been recognized for excellence in governmental budgeting.

The Government Finance Officers Association has awarded the county its Distinguished Budget Presentation Award for Bibb’s fiscal year 2008 budget, Commission Chairman Sam Hart announced at the commission’s Tuesday meeting.

“This group is deserving of that kind of recognition,” Hart said, as he presented a plaque to Finance Director Deborah Martin and her staff. “Thank you, and keep up the good work.”

This is the 19th consecutive year the county has received the award, which is based on the finance department satisfying nationally recognized guidelines for budget presentation, according to a news release.
