PLATTEVILLE GETS STEWARDSHIP AWARD

The City of Platteville has been recognized

with a Stewardship Award at the Governor’s

Conference on Tourism, held this week in

Madison.

City Communications Specialist Angie Donovan

says the award is presented to a business or

community in Wisconsin, that uses or

promotes, sustainable practices.

In other words, the city has taken steps to

help the environment.

Donovan explains.

Donovan says Platteville Dairy Days saw a

30% reduction in the garbage collected after

the festival, because of the recycling bins.

The city was nominated for the

Stewardship Award by the Platteville

Chamber of Commerce.

While other organizations, communities,

and individuals from the region were

nominated for awards, there were no other

recipients outside of the city of Platteville.
