City of Toronto Participating in Municipal Awards Program
  
Toronto Mayor David Miller announced today that the City has submitted five key
projects for consideration in the Canadian Association of Municipal
Administrators (CAMA) 2005 Awards Program. CAMA encourages the improvement of
the art of municipal management and recognizes specific contributions of
association members.

"We believe these five projects demonstrate the City of Toronto’s commitment
and leadership in the fields of environmental stewardship, ingenuity and
innovation, and education and research," said Mayor Miller. "We are very proud
of these programs and very much appreciate the opportunity to participate in
the awards program and share our experiences with other municipalities."

"I believe that the Toronto Public Service excels in its service and commitment
to the people of this City and that we deliver high quality, effective and
innovative programming," added Chief Administrative Officer Shirley Hoy.

Our nominations are in the following categories:
  • Education Award: City of Toronto Accessibility Design Guidelines
  • Environment Award: Green Bin Organic Collection Program
  • Environment Award: Green Fleet Transition Plan
  • Innovation Award: Kids @ Computers Scholarship Project: Building bridges,
    giving hope, investing in the future
  • Innovation Award: Our Common Grounds - Toronto Parks, Recreation and
    Forestry

    CAMA will announce the winning submissions at the end of April.
