The annual conference drew in nearly 500 city officials and leaders from across the commonwealth. The City Officials Training Center is a voluntary education program administered by the Kentucky League of Cities (KLC). City officials can complete education levels by attending KLC events and by submitting outside training credit from other municipal training. There are three levels of achievement: Level I - Achievement in City Governance, Level II - Excellence in City Governance and Level III - Master of City Governance. To maintain the masters an additional 15 hours of courses must be completed annually. “The COTC program provides a variety of training that better equips our city leaders across the state to serve their local communities. With this achievement and the amount of training it represents, citizens are the real winners because our communities are reaping the benefits of better informed leaders,” said J.D. Chaney, KLC deputy executive director. “This is an impressive feat and a testament to the dedication of these city officials.” This year 34 officials received the highest training achievement offered by COTC, the Level III - Master of City Governance award.
