The City of Loveland has been awarded the 2012 Certificate of Excellence from the International City/County Management Association (ICMA) for its efforts to measure and improve local government performance, as well as Loveland’s commitment to integrating performance measurement into city services.
This is Loveland’s first Certificate of Excellence and its fourth performance measurement award from ICMA. The City was recognized for performance measurement and management efforts in 2009 with a Certificate of Achievement, and again in 2010 and 2011 with a Certificate of Distinction. Loveland is among 26 jurisdictions across the country receiving the highest level of recognition in 2012.
Loveland Mayor Rob Weisgerber is proud of the fact that Loveland is a leader among city governments in using data. “We are honored to be recognized by ICMA again this year. Measuring results in government has never been more important given today’s economy and the need for efficiency. The Certificate of Excellence confirms that Loveland is a leader in the use of performance measurement.”
ICMA, the organization recognizing the City for the fourth consecutive year, is an organization committed to professional local government management and advancing professional local government worldwide. ICMA is the professional organization for 9,000 local government managers who work in communities with a combined population of 185 million people.
The Center for Performance Measurement (CPM) is a service of ICMA that is dedicated to helping local governments improve the effectiveness and efficiency of public services through the collection, analysis, and application of performance information. CPM currently assists over 200 towns, cities, counties, and other local government entities in the United States and Canada with the collection, analysis, and application of performance information.
The City of Loveland will be presented this award at the ICMA Annual Conference in Phoenix in October. Loveland is one of only sixteen local governments in Ohio participating in ICMA CPM and the only community in Ohio to receive recognition in 2012.
