VANCOUVER — The Union of B.C. Municipalities gave the City of Surrey two Best Practices awards this week during its annual convention in Vancouver.

Surrey received the Excellence in Action award for its street light copper wire replacement program and the Community Connection award for the MySurrey and Surrey Request apps.

The annual awards aim to showcase local governments who take risks to innovate, establish new partnerships, challenge established ways or doing business and pioneer new customer service practices.

Award applications were received from communities throughout the province and members of the UBCM executive board were joined by experts to evaluate submissions.

The UBCM was formed in 1905 to provide a common voice for local government.
