Community Survey Reports

In 2020, citizens expressed their desire to see the City prioritize street improvements, neighborhoods, police services, and efforts to attract and retain businesses.  After two years, we want to ensure that the City's priorities are still aligned with the needs of our residents.

We are asking our citizens to complete a community survey to help guide the decisions that affect a wide range of City services. These services include public safety, parks and recreation, streets, infrastructure maintenance, and more. Your responses will allow City leadership and staff to identify and address many of the opportunities and challenges facing our community.

The survey was mailed to 5,000 randomly selected residents on September 2, 2022.

Government Finance Officers Association Budget Award

Chicago, Illinois --Government Finance Officers Association is pleased to announce that City of Davenport, Iowa, has received GFOA's Distinguished Budget Presentation Award for its budget.

The award represents a significant achievement by the entity. It reflects the commitment of the governing body and staff to meeting the highest principles of governmental budgeting. In order to receive the budget award, the entity 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
- a communications device

Budget documents must be rated "proficient" in all four categories, and in the fourteen mandatory criteria within those categories, to receive the award.

When a Distinguished Budget Presentation Award is granted to an entity, a Certificate of Recognition for Budget Presentation is also presented to the individual(s) or department designated as being primarily responsible for having achieved the award. This has been presented to Finance Department.

There are over 1,600 participants in the Budget Awards Program. The most recent Budget Award recipients, along with their corresponding budget documents, are posted quarterly on GFOA's website. Award recipients have pioneered efforts to improve the quality of budgeting and provide an excellent example for other governments throughout North America.

Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) advances excellence in government finance by providing best practices, professional development, resources and practical research for more than 20,500 members and the communities they serve.
