Michigan Municipal League Honors Two Officials for Outstanding Service

Livonia's Mike Fisher and Port Huron's Bob Clegg Receive Awards

LANSING, Michigan – The Michigan Municipal League honored two municipal officials with the 2015 Outstanding Service Awards during the League’s annual Capital Conference March 24-25 in Lansing.

The League recognized Bob Clegg, Port Huron city engineer, and Mike Fisher, Livonia assistant city attorney during a luncheon March 25. They were honored by League CEO and Executive Director Dan Gilmartin and the League’s legislative team. The honor is given to recognize those who have gone above and beyond the call of duty in supporting the League's legislative efforts in Lansing on behalf of Michigan communities.

Clegg, who is set to retire on April 1, has been an incredible asset to the Michigan Municipal League in his many years of service to the city of Port Huron.

“We would like to thank him for his many years of service, congratulate him on his upcoming retirement, and let him know that his dedication to the Michigan Municipal League has been felt by many,” said Chris Hackbarth, the League’s director of state affairs.

During his time with the City of Lansing, and most recently the City of Port Huron, Clegg has served as chair of the League’s Transportation and Infrastructure Committee. This important role has allowed the League to utilize his expertise to develop and shape policy that has benefitted every community in the state.

In addition to those services, Clegg has also served as the League’s liaison for the Michigan Department of Transportation’s Local Bridge Authority and the Michigan Chapter of the American Public Works Association.

“At a time when further investment from the state is needed in our transportation network, Bob has spent countless hours discussing, and standing up for the importance of making this critical investment,” Hackbarth said. “Thank you Bob for your service and the tremendous impact you have had on our organization. You will be missed!”

Fisher, who has worked in the City of Livonia’s law department since 1994, has been a great source of knowledge for Michigan Municipal League staff for many years through his involvement in the League’s Economic Development and Land Use Committee. Most recently, Fisher gave of his time to serve on the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development’s Urban Farming task force as a representative for the League and local communities, said Chris Hackbarth, the League’s director of state affairs.

Additionally, in his role as a member of the Michigan Association of Municipal Attorney’s Legislative Committee, he was “extremely helpful in advocating on behalf of local communities regarding the Freedom of Information Act legislation passed into law last year,” Hackbarth said.

“He has testified multiple times in legislative committees and continues to be a resource for the League and a phenomenal advocate on local issues,” Hackbarth said.
