In November, the city of Fort Collins won the national Malcolm Baldrige Quality Award. The Baldrige Award is a Presidential-level honor recognizing
organizations and businesses for their leadership and innovation. This week, Governor Hickenlooper proclaimed a day in honor of Fort Collins.
"Fort Collins is a wonderful community in many ways including having a high performing city government," Mayor Wade Troxell said in the city's press release announcing the award. "Achieving performance excellence helps us provide world class municipal services through operational excellence and a culture of innovation. Our citizens and businesses are the inspiration behind this pursuit."
