City Council Accepting Citizen Award Nominations until June 5

The City of Covington recognizes two outstanding individuals each year as its Citizen of the Year and Honorary Citizen of the Year. Over the past several years, these honored individuals have been volunteers, advocates, ambassadors, dedicated residents and real assets of the City of Covington. If you know or have observed such an outstanding individual that deserves to be honored by the City of Covington, now is the time to let your City Council know about them!

Citizen of the Year nominees must reside within Covington city limits. Honorary Citizen of the Year nominees should live outside of Covington, but have made an impact on the City in some way. Award winners will be celebrated at the July 9 regular City Council Meeting. Winners will also be asked to participate in the Covington Days Festival Parade in July and at the Annual Tree Lighting Event in December.
