The Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) has recognized the City of Slidell with its Distinguished Budget Presentation Award.


The award is based on a public agency’s budget containing four essential elements: a policy document, a financial plan, an operations guide, and a communications device. In addition to a proficiency rating in all four categories, there are 14 additional criteria each public entity must meet.


“I’m very happy with this accomplishment, and am proud of our finance department staff,” said Slidell Mayor Greg Cromer. “We will always prioritize transparency and efficiency in everything we do at City Hall, and everything is a team effort to serve the people of our city. I’m very happy with the performance of the people’s team in Slidell.”

GFOA has more than 22,500 members, and more than 1,700 participants in its Budget Awards Program.
