Bommer of the Colorado Municipal League stops at City Hall in Monte Vista
MONTE VISTA — Colorado Municipal League Executive Director Kevin Bommer stopped at City Hall in Monte Vista on Tuesday, Oct. 24, to promote the organization's 100th birthday appreciation tour.
“We are going to every municipality in the state of Colorado that’s a member of CML which is every municipality in the state of Colorado all 270 this year,” he said. “We are just stopping off and saying thanks for being CML members and sharing in our celebration with us. We've had events throughout the year. We kicked it off at our conference last year, but it was really important to us to make sure our members know that we appreciate them. There wouldn't be a league without municipalities being members of CML and so that's why I'm here.”
Bommer took a picture in front of City Hall with Chief of Police George Dingfelder, Monte Vista Mayor Dale Becker, Councilmember Martha Lock, City Clerk Unita Vance, Recreation Director Dervin Taylor, and other city employees and law enforcement officers. Mayor Becker held up a sign in honor of the 100-year celebration.
