Fort Collins has some huge news! The City of Fort Collins has won a 2017 Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award. The Baldrige Award is the only formal recognition of the performance excellence of both public and private U.S. organizations given by the President of the United States. Only 18 awards may be given annually and as of 2016, 113 awards have been presented to 106 organizations (including seven repeat winners) since 1988. This is a true honor and I consider myself grateful and fortunate to live in such a wonderful city.
