City of Covington Receives Recognition In Louisiana Municipal Association 2014 Convention

The City of Covington is once again proud to be recognized as a leader in community achievements at the recent Louisiana Municipal Association convention held in Baton Rouge. This prestigious award competition, conducted for the 46th year, acknowledges municipalities that display outstanding improvements and accomplishments for their communities. Awards are categorized in three groups: basic service, community development, economic development, and are presented in four population subcategories.

Covington was awarded honorable mention in the category of community development for the exceptional Bicentennial Celebration activities which lead to the establishment of the Covington Heritage Foundation, whose mission is to preserve and cultivate Covington’s culture, character and community. “It is an honor to receive this esteemed recognition which is representative of the community-wide support of our Bicentennial and demonstrates the significant efforts of our citizens and Bicentennial Committee members,” Mayor Mike Cooper.

The competition is co-sponsored by the Louisiana Department of Economic Development, Louisiana Industrial Development Executives Association, and Louisiana Municipal Association. This is the third consecutive year that the City of Covington has been selected to receive an award in the LMA Community Achievement competition.
