The E.A. Mosher Excellence in Local Government Award
The Excellence in Local Government Award is presented annually to an elected city official who has demonstrated outstanding service to not only his or her own city, but has also shown an active commitment to strong local government and service to the League of Kansas Municipalities. Named in honor of E.A. Mosher, League Director from 1960 to 1991, this award is designed to honor excellence and leadership at the highest level.
Nominations are accepted year-round. Recipients are awarded during the League's Annual Conference in the Fall.
