For the 11th year in a row, the City of Shawnee has been awarded the Government Finance Officers Association Distinguished Budget Presentation Award for the 2017 budget.

The award is designed to reflect the commitment of the governing body and staff to meeting the highest principles of governmental budgeting and is based on;

  • an operations guide
  • a communications device
"As a City, our Councilmembers and staff take our residents' money very seriously," said City Manager Carol Gonzales. "We always want to hear what our residents think is best for our community so we can make crucial budget decisions based on that information to keep Shawnee thriving."
