The 2015 League of California Cities will have its annual conference and expo at the San Jose McEnery Convention Center in the fall.
The City of Ripon will again be part of the largest premiere event in the state, joining over 1,900 city officials – mayors, council members, city managers, city attorneys and city clerks – on Sept. 30 through Oct. 2.
“This is a good conference to attend, especially with water issues that are going on right now,” Vice Mayor Jake Parks said at the June 16 Ripon City Council meeting. “It’s also good way to learn what other cities are doing.”
He attended last year’s conference.
Councilman Dean Uecker agreed to attend as a voting delegate for this year’s League of California Cities convention, with Mayor Leo Zuber serving as the alternate.
Uecker initially nominated colleague Mark Winchell – his name came up since everyone of the elected leaders attended the conference in the past – as the voting delegate. But he and Parks both bowed out because of work schedules.
The League of California Cities is the leading advocate for the common interest of cities throughout the state.
The mission statement here is “to expand and protect local control for cities though education and advocacy to enhance the quality of life for all Californians.”
Council voted 5-0 on Uecker’s selection and Zuber as the alternate. Cost for the conference is $500.
