Vancouver, Wash., wins national budget award

VANCOUVER, Wash. -- The city of Vancouver has won a national award for its 2011-12 budget. But the announcement of the award coincides with news that the city's budget manager is leaving.
The Columbian reported the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award from the Government Finance Officers Association honors state and local governments that prepare budgets according to best practices established by the National Advisory Council on State and Local Budgeting. Those practices include a demonstration of long-term goals and budgetary trends and an explanation of priorities, revenues and expenditures.
The city's budget planning manager, Natasha Ramras, submitted her resignation this week to City Manager Eric Holmes.
Ramras will work as the finance director of the Knight Cancer Institute at Oregon Health & Science University.
