A Malcolm Baldrige for a small town? I’ve never heard of it, but why not?
Larry Paine, City Manager of Concordia, KS, does a great blog on his town. In his blog last week he laid down the challenge to his town to win the award.
When I asked him if he knew of any other towns that have gone after this very prestigious award, he told me, “The International City/County Management Association has told me that Coral Springs, FA submitted an application. They have a 2002 population of 132.776 according to their online application. They are just a little bugger that we are - just 24 times bigger.”
I’m rooting for Concordia and will be following their progress.
