April 20, 2022

King Township has received an award for its budget presentation from the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada.

The township has received the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award for its 2022 budget. The award “reflects the commitment of the governing body and staff to meeting the highest principles of governmental budgeting,” according to the association.

“This budget presentation award from the Government Finance Officers Association reflects the high-quality work in creating and delivering a budget document that clearly identifies how taxpayers’ dollars are being invested in our community, contributing to the quality of life we enjoy in King,” said Daniel Kostopoulos, King’s chief administrative officer.

To get the award, the township had to satisfy nationally recognized guidelines for effective budget presentation to assess how well the budget serves as a policy document, financial plan, operations guide and communications device, according to the association.

“King Township council has worked hard to keep the annual property tax increase as close as possible to zero per cent during these challenging economic times. It is important that we are also able to share King’s stories, including the direction the township is taking and the exciting future this council has planned, in consultation with our residents,” said Mayor Steve Pellegrini.
