25 Year Awards memo and nomination form

OML Joins with Towns and Cities to Honor Municipal Service
Several years ago the OML board decided to show its appreciation by honoring those individuals who had served 25 years in municipal government by presenting them with a 25-year award. Each municipality chooses the most appropriate way to recognize their honorees. The honoree names are inscribed in a permanent Honor Roll of Service leather-bound album maintained at the OML office. These names will remain a permanent record on display – next time you’re in the Oklahoma City come by OML and take a look.

25 Years of Service Awards

Each year the Board of Directors of the Oklahoma Municipal League recognizes officials and employees of cities and towns who have completed a minimum of 25 years of service.

The honoree names are inscribed in a permanent Honor Roll of Service leather-bound album maintained at the League. In addition, honorees are given a certificate and a lapel pin recognizing their 25 years of service to municipal government. The certificate and pin will be sent to the municipality once the list of names has been received.

Each municipality can choose the most appropriate setting for recognizing the honorees. Many choose to have the mayor make the presentation during one of their council meetings. Others prefer an OML Board Member or someone from OML staff to participate. Please indicate on the attached nomination form whether you will be making the presentation or if you prefer an OML board or staff member to make the presentation or help facilitate the event.

To be eligible for this honor, an individual must have served as a municipal official, or employee (in any capacity) at least 25 years at one or more municipalities. (Example #1: a person who has served as a planning commission member, a councilmember and a mayor for a total of 25 years would be eligible for this award. Example #2: an employee that has served as treasurer for one town for 15 years, took time off and then served as finance director for another town for 10 years is eligible to receive this award.) Any municipal official or employee is eligible as long as they have served municipal government for at least 25 years.

Honorees who have already received the award are not eligible. Names of previous honorees from your municipality should be included on the enclosed list. These names remain a permanent record in the Honor Roll of Service album on display at the OML office and will not be removed even upon retirement or death. If your municipality has not previously submitted names for this award, there will not be an enclosed list.
