Pierce County Budget and Finance has received the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award for its 2011 budget from the Government Finance Officers Association.

“This year, we did not receive a single ‘does not satisfy’ rating on any of the 27 criteria evaluated,” said Budget Manager Aaron BeMiller. “Our small staff produces exceptional work that amazes me each day.”

The GFOA is a nonprofit professional association serving about 17,600 government finance professionals.
