The Kentucky League of Cities recognized Danville Commissioner Denise Terry and Chief Financial Officer Michele Gosser with Level III Master of City Governance awards. Additionally, KLC presented City Manager Earl Coffey and Code Enforcement Officer Ian Young Level I awards for Achievement in City Governance.

The recognitions are part of the KLC City Officials Training Center (COTC), a voluntary education program. City officials complete education levels by attending KLC events and submitting outside educational credit from other municipal training.

“The KLC COTC program is just one way KLC works to serve our members,” said KLC Executive Director/CEO J.D. Chaney. “Through the program, city officials receive a variety of training opportunities. We appreciate the willingness of Danville city officials to take part in these events. It is a testament to their dedication to quality governance at the local level.”

The Level III Master of City Governance award requires a city official to attend 90 hours of approved training with three hours of ethics training.

The Level I Achievement in City Governance award requires a city official to attend 30 hours of approved training with one hour of ethics training.
