Solano County Gets Award of Excellence for Annual Report
By Daily Republic staff
FAIRFIELD - Solano County continues to rake in the awards - this time for its newly formed public information department.
The National Association of County Information Officers has recognized Solano County with two awards for public information in its 2006 Awards of Excellence Competition.
The county's 2005 Annual Report received an "Award of Excellence" in the annual reports magazine format, while a county press release on tourism received a "Meritorious Award" for news release writing.
"It is important for the public to be aware of the activities of its government," said County Administrator Michael Johnson, in a written statement. "The efforts of our staff to inform, and the quality of information they provide to the public, is exemplified by these awards."
The Solano County 2005 Annual Report was a 24-page document that highlighted the achievements of county government in 2005. Material for the magazine was provided from all county departments.
The national competition is conducted annually by the association. This year there were more than 500 entries in 34 categories.
The awards will be presented during the annual National Association of Counties conference on Aug. 4 in Chicago.
