The North Shore will be honored at the 98th annual conference of the International City/County Management Association (ICMA), which runs October 7 to 10 in Phoenix.
The Village of Glenview and the City of Lake Forest will be among the 2012 recipients of the Community Partnership Program Excellence Award, for communities with populations 10,000 to 49,000. The towns will share the award based on their participation in the Municipal Partnering Initiative.
The awards will be accepted by Glenview Village Manager Todd Hileman and Lake Forest City Manager Robert Kiely Jr.
The Municipal Partnering Initiative was launched more than two years ago to find new solutions in the way local governments deliver services, with the goal of saving taxpayer money. Through joint contracts, the governments save money by leveraging geographic proximity.
During his visit to Phoenix, Hileman will be among panelists for a session on “Total Compensation: Balancing Pay and Benefits,” scheduled on Monday, October 8.
