A Dec. 12 awards event will highlight innovation by local governments

"Government innovation" might sound like an oxymoron, but fewer dollars means that cities, counties, and schools across Minnesota simply have no choice but to innovate. The question is, which ones are doing it well? For that we look to the annual Local Government Innovation Awards, now in its seventh year. The awards will be given out on Dec. 12 at the University of Minnesota's Humphrey School of Public Affairs in Minneapolis. Attendees will get a chance to network with the winners after the ceremony. Who knows? You might come away with an idea or two for your business. To learn more, visit lgia.umn.edu.
