The Arkansas Municipal League honored Lake City Mayor Jon Milligan at its 83rd Convention held in Little Rock. Mayor Milligan was presented with the Adrian L. White Municipal Leadership Award. This award is presented to municipal officials who have served with distinction and dedication to their cities and the League's boards, councils, or committees for six years.

The award is named in honor of White, who was mayor of Pocahontas from 1967-1974 and a former League President and Vice President.

More than 1,300 city and town leaders from across Arkansas attended the convention where they adopted the League's agenda for the coming year.

The Arkansas Municipal League is a service and advocacy organization for the municipalities of Arkansas. The League offers its programs and services to all 500 cities and town in the state and was created in 1934 to assist cities with information and representation in the public affairs of Arkansas and the nation.
