Of the communities that participated in The National Citizen Survey in 2016, winners and finalists for Excellence in these categories received the highest overall levels of satisfaction from residents.  Now running nine years, the Voice of the People Awards are presented by the International City/County Management Association (ICMA) and National Research Center, Inc.  City Manager A.J. Johnson will accept the award at the 103rd Annual ICMA conference in San Antonio, TX, October Monday 23, 2017.
