WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Conference of Mayors today recognized outstanding partnerships between cities and companies at the Conference's 75th Winter Meeting. In addition to Las Vegas (NV) Mayor Oscar B. Goodman who serves as Chair of the Mayors and Business Community Task Force, Trenton Mayor and Conference President Douglas H. Palmer participated in the awards ceremony.

In announcing the awards, Mayor Goodman remarked, "Today's awards recognize five successful and outstanding relationships between cities and businesses. They support the Conference's message of creating a strong and engaged business community inside our organization, sharing and working with us on visions of success to make our cities-and ultimately our nation - economically stronger."

The Mayors' Business Council established the awards to encourage businesses and cities to work together to improve local communities. An independent panel of judges was appointed by the Conference of Mayors to review the submissions. Criteria upon which their selections were made included: improvement in delivery of services, replicability, sustainability, cost savings, creativity of approach, benefits to both public and private partners, economic and business benefits, and measurable results.
