“Serving as local government officials you face important issues everyday and are tasked with developing solutions,” Walker said. “Today we celebrate and recognize your hard work; Pennsylvania communities are fortunate to have dedicated individuals whose commitment helps create better places to live and work.”

The recognitions were part of the 16th Annual Governor’s Awards for Local Government Excellence. In total, eight local government leaders and eight communities across the state received awards that were presented today at the Capitol Building in Harrisburg.

The following municipalities in the Greater Philadelphia area were recognized:

The Governor’s Awards for Local Government Excellence are presented annually to communities and individuals by the Governor’s Center for Local Government Services (GCLGS), an office within the DCED that works to assist Pennsylvania’s 2,562 local governments. A panel of judges from the GCLGS reviewed applications submitted by municipal organizations from across the state and selected the award recipients.

The community awards cover 10 categories, including: building community partnerships; promoting community and economic revitalization; innovative community and governmental initiatives; fiscal accountability; innovative planning and sound land-use practices; intergovernmental cooperation; responding to adversity; innovative energy conservation; and innovative environmental partnerships. The individual awards are presented to local government officials who have worked to improve their communities.
