Fiscal Year 2010 Annual Budget

City of Carbondale
Financial Overview


City of Carbondale 2010 Operating Budget:

The city of Carbondale has been announced as a finalist in the All-America City Award competition. Carbondale joins 32 other communities in being named a finalist for one of the 10 awards, which are bestowed by the National Civic League for outstanding civic accomplishments. Mayor Brad Cole said Carbondale has not applied for the award since 1971, when the city was named an All-America City. The All-America City Award is like a civic “Oscar” for communities of all sizes. The program is unique because it recognizes the efforts of entire communities. The award program demonstrates inclusiveness, collaboration, civic engagement and innovation. An All-America City must demonstrate a proven capacity for community-based problem solving, grassroots civic engagement and cooperation between sectors (public, private and nonprofit). 




The Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) presented an award for Distinguished Presentation to the City of Carbondale for its annual budget for the fiscal year beginning May 1, 2008.

In order to receive this award, a government unit must publish a budget document that meets program criteria as a policy document, as an operational guide, as a financial plan and as a communications device.

The award is valid for a period of one year only. We believe our current budget continues to conform to program requirements, and we are submitting it to GFOA to determine its eligibility for another award.
