City of Piqua Pulls Out of GovFresh 2013 City of the Year Award
The City of Piqua has announced that it has withdrawn its nomination for 2013 City of the Year, citing problems with the administration of the award. "On December 18th, it was clearly stated that the winner of the award would be announced. There was no word until December 20th, when we heard that that the group was going to continue to accept nominations until January 10th and that the top three vote-getters would not be finalists," said William Lutz.

Lutz continued, "With the changes in these rules in the middle of the competition, the city did not feel it was appropriate to continue. We have reached out to the individuals at and expressed our concerns with their program. Above all else, we are disappointed for our residents. Our residents put a considerable amount of time and effort in this program, and their efforts should not go unnoticed or unappreciated."

Those with comments or questions are strongly encouraged to contact William Lutz, Development Program Manager at 937-778-2062 or via email at
