It’s budget time here at the city which means it’s one of the busiest times of the year for our finance department. Did you know that the people who make up the White Settlement finance department have a total of 76 years in finance work experience with 47 of those years spent in municipal finance? The City of White Settlement’s finance department has received the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award 29 years in a row for their outstanding work on the city budget year after year. This award is presented by the Government Finance Officers Association and is the highest form of recognition in governmental budgeting. Of the over 90,000 local governments in the United States, less than 2,000 received this award last year.
Finance Director Phil Bray spoke about his time with the White Settlement finance department. “It’s been nice to work with such an organized and efficient finance department. It’s not that way everywhere you go,” Bray said.
