Three Dunn County officials received top honors last month during the North Dakota League of Cities’ annual workshop.

Maggie Piatz, council member for the city of Dunn Center, received a Visionary Award and auditor Lynnette Nodland received an Innovator Award at the Municipal Government Academy awards ceremony during the tenth annual workshop held March 19-21 in Bismarck.

Killdeer City Commissioner Anita Mjolhus also was honored during the ceremony, receiving a Leader Award.

“It takes real effort to achieve this honor,” said Nicole Peske, education director for the North Dakota League of Cities. “Their city should be very proud of them and will definitely see the benefits of having an individual so committed to the future of the community.”

The Municipal Government Academy’s Leadership Training Program recognizes city leaders for their dedication, time and commitment in making their communities better places to live. Award winners receive credits in the Leadership Training Program (LTP) by attending conferences and training events sponsored by the North Dakota League of Cities.

Sixteen LTP participants were recognized for achieving the first level or “Innovator” award (30 hours of training), twelve city leaders achieved the “Visionary” award (60 hours of training), thirteen individuals achieved the “Leader” award (100 hours of training) and three person reached the “110 percent” award that requires 200 hours of training.

The North Dakota League of Cities provides service, advocacy, leadership, education and support for North Dakota’s 357 incorporated cities. The Leadership Training Program is the cornerstone of the League’s commitment to providing city officials with the tools they need to govern effectively.
