Deedee Corradini
Mayor of Salt Lake City
President, The U. S. Conference of Mayors

We are very pleased to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of Waste Management's sponsorship of our City Livability Awards Program. For the past nine years, The U.S. Conference of Mayors has had the privilege of working with Waste Management to bring well-deserved recognition to mayors and municipalities for local programs designed to enhance the quality of life for their citizens.

We encourage you to participate in the City Livability Awards Program by selecting one or more of your city government programs, or "best practices," that has improved the quality of life for your community and its residents. By sharing your ideas, programs and policies you help all of us meet our continuing challenges as mayors.

Now in its 20th year, the City Livability Awards Program has become an integral part of The U.S. Conference of Mayors and our efforts to share information on what's working in our cities. We look forward to hearing about your best efforts to make a difference through good government.
