BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – The Florida League of Cities, Inc. has recognized Melbourne Mayor Kathy Meehan with a 2018 Home Rule Hero Award.
Meehan was recognized for her tireless efforts to advance the League’s legislative agenda and help protect the Home Rule powers of Florida’s cities during the 2018 legislative session.
“I am honored to serve the residents and businesses of the City of Melbourne,” said Meehan.
Home Rule is the ability for a city to address local problems through and by local decision-makers with minimal state interference.
The Home Rule Hero Award recipients are local government officials – both elected and nonelected – who consistently responded to the League’s request to reach out to members of the legislature and help give a local perspective to an issue.
“These dedicated municipal officials are some of the Florida League of Cities’ biggest advocates for municipal issues,” said Florida League of Cities President Gil Ziffer.
“Their efforts during the 2018 legislative session were extraordinary. The League and its legislative team are proud to recognize and thank them for their service.”
