2023-2025 Biennium Budget

GFOA established the Distinguished Budget Presentation Awards Program (Budget Awards Program) to encourage and assist state and local governments to prepare budget documents of the very highest quality. The City of Ashland has received this award for the past 31 years.

The Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) presented an award for Distinguished Presentation to the City of Ashland for its biennial budget for the Biennium beginning July 1, 2021.


In order to receive this award, a governmental unit must publish a budget document that meets program criteria as a policy document, as an operations guide, as a financial plan, and as a communications device.


The award is valid for a period of two years only. We believe our current budget continues to conform to program requirements. We are submitting it to GFOA to determine its eligibility for another award.
