The Government Finance Officers Association recently handed out a national award to the city comptroller's office for its presentation of the city's yearly budget.
Calling the award "a significant achievement," the association said the honor "relfects the commitment" of the cit and its staff "to meeting the highest principles of governmental budgeting."
The association recognizes exceptional budgets that manage to serve as a policy document, a financial plan, an operations guide, policy and a communications device.

Bristol's award singled out a handful of individuals for special recognition for their work on the 2009-2010 fiscal year budget: David Bertnagel, chief accountant; Robin Manuele, assistant comptroller; Tina Bunnell, accountant; and Jodi McGrane, assistant to the comptroller. The comptroller is Glenn Klocko.
The GFOA awards are the only national ones for governmental budgeting.
