Award Winning Staff
From 1989 through 2015.  the Finance Department earned the prestigious Certificate of Achievement in Financial Reporting from the Government Finance Officers Association for the City's comprehensive annual financial report. The highest form of recognition from the Association, this certificate represents a significant achievement by our Finance Department and is indicative of the professionalism with which they carry out their responsibilities.
The Finance Department has also received the Distinguished Budget presentation Award.  The award was received by the Department from 2007 through 2012.  To-quality budget documents are essential if citizens and others with an interest in a government's finances are to be fully aware and informed participants in the budget process.  Better budget documents contribute to better decision making and enhanced accountability.  Forest Park joined only 24 other Ohio jurisdictions in receiving this recognition.
