(Tallahassee, Fla.) – The Florida Municipal Electric Association (FMEA) recently honored the community service efforts of the City of Bushnell by recognizing the municipal electric utility with the 2016 Building Strong Communities Award.

Honored during the Building Strong Communities luncheon at FMEA’s annual Energy Connections Conference and Trade Show in Orlando, on October 27, the City of Bushnell received the award for its commitment to enhancing its customers’ quality of life through community improvement programs such as the Summer Day Camp, Bushnell Fall Festival,  Movies in the Parks, Public Safety Awareness Programs and Crafts Around the Corner Arts and Crafts Show.

“Being a part of the community is about more than making sure the lights are on,” said FMEA Executive Director Barry Moline. “The recipients of the 2016 FMEA Building Strong Communities Awards excel in not only taking an interest in seeing their communities succeed, but also actively working toward making them better places to live and building strong communities.”

About FMEA: The Florida Municipal Electric Association (FMEA) represents the unified interests of 34 public power communities across the state, which provide electricity to more than 3 million of Florida’s residential and business consumers.
