The City Officials Training Center is a voluntary education program administered by the Kentucky League of Cities (KLC). City officials can complete education levels by attending KLC events and by submitting outside training credit from other municipal training. There are three levels of achievement: Level I- Achievement in City Governance, Level II- Excellence in City Governance and Level III- Masters of City Governance.

“The COTC program provides a variety of training that better equips our city leaders across the state to serve their local communities. With this achievement and the amount of training it represents, citizens are the real winners because our communities are reaping the benefits of better informed leaders,” said J.D. Chaney, KLC deputy executive director. “This is an impressive feat and a testament to the dedication of these city officials.”

This year 93 city officials received the Level I- Achievement in City Governance award. This honor requires the city official to attend 30 hours of approved training with one hour of ethics training.
