Walkup, Alice, Nation's Cities Weekly


Three cities and three villages were honored for their innovative, resourceful and creative projects during the New York State Conference of Mayors and Municipal Officials (NYCOM) Annual Meeting in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., held June 10-13.

Co-sponsoring the 19th Annual Local Government Achievement Awards program, NYCOM and the Empire State Report--a magazine of politics, policy and government in New York--chose winners based on program innovation, economic benefit to the community, applicability to other municipalities, improved government efficiency, citizen participation or public/private partnership, and quality of life improvement.

The following municipalities are this year's winners:

BAP has directly retained 548 jobs and created 226 new ones.
