[ARCHIVED] Councilmembers Awarded with Certificate of Municipal Leadership

Battle Ground Mayor Shane Bowman and Councilmember Adrian Cortes were recognized at this year's Association of Washington Cities (AWC) conference for having earned AWC’s Certificate of Municipal Leadership (CML) in 2013. Councilmember Bill Ganley previously earned the distinction in 2005.

The CML program is designed to enhance the ability of elected municipal officials by providing the knowledge and skills to effectively operate within the law, plan for the future, secure and manage funds, and foster community relationships. Recipients complete over 30 hours of training through attending a variety of workshops and courses designed to equip them with the essentials of municipal service.

The City of Battle Ground operates under the Council-Manager Plan of Government (RCW 35A.13) in which the City Council is responsible for the legislative function of the city such as establishing policy, passing local ordinances, approving budget appropriations and developing an overall vision for the city. The council appoints a City Manager who implements its policies and oversees administrative operations.

Both Mayor Bowman and Councilmember Cortes were elected to City Council in November of 2011 and began their 4-year terms in office in January of 2012. Councilmember Bill Ganley was elected in 1993 and is currently serving his 6th consecutive term in office.
