Upper Uwchlan Township has been awarded the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) Distinguished Budget Presentation Award for its 2015 budget document. The award reflects a significant organizational achievement and reflects the commitment and dedication of the Board of Supervisors and staff to meeting the highest principles and well recognized governmental best practices in the area of governmental budgeting. In order to receive the budget award the Township had to satisfy nationally recognized guidelines for effective budget presentation. These guidelines are designed to assess how well an entity’s budget serves as a policy document, a financial plan, an operations guide, and a communications device. The Board of Supervisors tasked staff, on an ongoing basis, with presenting a comprehensive and transparent document that clearly communicates to our residents both the priorities of Township government and financial condition. Thank you to all of the Department Heads involved in the budget process for their ongoing efforts.
