As it's Local Government Awareness Week - it's an opportunity for communities to commemorate their local governments.
 
The Local Government Management Association (LGMA) is celebrating their 100th anniversary this year and the City of Fort St. John wanted to do something special.
 
The city planted a tree outside city hall to celebrate the milestone of a century.
 
For the past 100 years, the LGMA has worked to support the learning, leadership and growth of local government professionals across the province.
 
"There's no education that really gets you ready for local government," says Dianne Hunter, Fort St. John's City Manager, "and so what the LGMA does is really work hard at developing professional development programs for employees that work in local government.

"We have probably eight staff that have received their certificates for government administration, so lots of training and investment dollars through the LGMA has a direct benefit to the community of Fort St. John."
 
the LGMA and BC Hydro's 'Community Regreening Program' have provided a tree to all local governments in B.C. to recognize the dedication, hard work and innovation by local government professionals.
