The Mississippi Municipal League Excellence Awards program recognizes cities and towns for meeting the challenges of municipal government through innovative problem solving, excellence in management, citizen participation and striving to provide a higher level of service. Each year, awards are given in the areas of public safety, planning and economic development and city spirit. Winners are chosen by a committee of judges outside of the MML and are recognized at the MML Annual Conference.
Projects being submitted for consideration must be completed by April 30th, but applications and related materials are not due until May 29th.
