FORT WAYNE – Huntingburg Clerk-Treasurer Thomas Dippel received the 2014 Financial Management Award from the Indiana Association of Cities and Towns (IACT).  Dippel was honored during the IACT Presidents’ Reception earlier this week at the IACT Annual Conference & Exhibition in Fort Wayne.

The Financial Management Award is given to a finance officer or administrator who has made outstanding achievements in fiscal management, financial recording and leadership in public service.

Clerk-Treasurer Dippel is currently serving in his 4th term as Huntingburg’s chief fiscal officer.  In his nomination, Huntingburg Mayor Denny Spinner noted Mr. Dippel’s role in overseeing all accounting functions for the city and its utilities.  He is best known for his impeccable financial recordkeeping and excellent investment strategies.

In addition to keeping an eagle eye over Huntingburg’s finances, Mr. Dippel is an active member of his community.  He is a lifelong member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church, past president of the Optimist Club, a former officer of Huntingburg Young Men Institute, Inc. and is active in many other church and community organizations.

“Huntingburg has a long history of fiscal responsibility, which has continued and been strengthened through Tom’s leadership,” says Mayor Spinner. “We are fortunate to be able to leverage his strengths to continue to make improvements to our city. I sincerely value working with Tom to continue to make Huntingburg ‘A City Like No Other.’”

In its 38th year, the IACT Annual Awards program, presented by Umbaugh, recognizes communities and individuals in municipal government for excellence and outstanding achievement.  A nine-member panel of qualified judges selected this year’s winners from a competitive field of nominees from around the state.

The Indiana Association of Cities and Towns (IACT) is a coalition of municipal officials who seek to improve the quality of life in Indiana through effective government, and is a member of the National League of Cities. Founded in 1891, IACT is one of the oldest state municipal organizations in the country, with 470 cities and towns as members.  IACT advocates for municipalities as the official voice of municipal government in Indiana, and promotes good government through education, training and leadership.
