The Matanuska-Susitna Borough Assembly and audience members gave Borough Finance Director Cheyenne Heindel and staff a standing ovation last night for a budget award from the Government Finance Officers Association. Called a Distinguished Budget Presentation Award, the honor is granted to "recipients who have pioneered efforts to improve the quality of budgeting and provide an excellent example for other governments throughout North America."
More than 1,600 participants are in the program. The award also reflects "the commitment of the governing body and staff to meeting the highest principles of governmental budgeting," the organization's press release states.
