RM of Macdonald reeve Rodney Burns recently received an award from the
Association of Manitoba Municipalities (AMM) for his 25 years of municipal service.
AMM president and Macdonald councillor Doug Dobrowolski presented Burns with the award.
"He’s been a great leader for Macdonald," said Dobrowolski.
He and the other Macdonald councillors were also pleased to give Burns a Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal last June to recognize his many years of contribution to the community.
The AMM gives out long service awards based on five-year increments. This year, RM of Cartier councillor Ken Beaudin, RM of St. Francois Xavier reeve Roger Poitras and St. Francois Xavier councillor Bob Thiessen received 15-year awards, while St. Francois Xavier councillor Yvonne Wood was given a 10-year award.
