City of Rockport | Rockport Receives “EXCELLENCE AWARD”

The City of Rockport was named the winner of the Texas Municipal League’s “Municipal Excellence Award for Communications Programs” at the association’s annual meeting in Fort Worth. According to Deputy Executive Director Rachel Pitts, the judges were very impressed with the City’s entry – Sustaining Communication Before and After a Disaster.

Formed in 1913, the Texas Municipal League’s (TML) mission is to serve the needs and advocate for the interests of Texas cities. This includes, but is not limited to legal guidance, legislative issues at the state and federal levels, and training.

Today TML represents more than 1,158 cities with populations ranging from under 5,000 to over 100,000. Over 16,000 mayors, councilmembers, city managers, city attorneys, and city department heads are member officials of the League by virtue of their cities' participation.

“It was truly an honor to be recognized by TML, “noted Rockport Mayor Pat Rios. “Our staff did an incredible job of overcoming major obstacles to ensure that our citizens were informed of all aspects of relief to recovery associated with Hurricane Harvey.

“They truly went above and beyond what was expected of them. We are so proud that they were honored with this recognition,” he’ added.
