CO Municipal League Recognizes Garden City Mayor and Trustee

Garden City Mayor Lonelle Archuleta and Trustee Fil Archuleta were recognized at the Colorado Municipal League’s Annual Conference in June. The Archuletas received plaques commemorating their commitment to their education as elected officials.

The Colorado Municipal League (CML) believes that municipal elected officials investing time and resources to participate in educational events to increase their knowledge of municipal government and enhance their capacity to lead should be recognized. For this reason, in 1991 the CML Executive Board created an elected officials leadership training program, now known as CML’s MUNIversity.

All elected officials from member municipalities are automatically enrolled in the program, and credits accumulate automatically for each training they attend.

If you see the Archuletas, be sure to congratulate them for their accomplishments!

June is Bike Month in Colorado

June is Bike Month. Get ready for 2017 Bike to Work Day, June 28.

BTWD-FullArt-v01Colorado is a premier bicycling state. To celebrate bicycling for transportation, fun and health, Colorado has designated each June as Bike Month. At the same time, Colorado joins a nationwide effort to encourage cycling novices and enthusiasts to experience the fun and freedom of safely riding a bike to work, school, errands and recreation.

While there will be many events around the state throughout the month, the highlight of the month is Bike to Work Day when employees leave their cars at home and enjoy bicycling to work. The number of Bike to Work Day participants has risen steadily since 1995, and due to the popularity of bicycling in Colorado that trend is expected to continue this year.

Learn more about the benefits of bicycling to work, school and errands.
