Hartselle recertifies as Community of Excellence

Special to the Enquirer  

Mayor Randy Garrison was recognized Thursday for Hartselle’s ACE designation and recertification.  

To be designated as an ACE community, a city must successfully complete the comprehensive three-phase approach to economic and community development. ACE communities are eligible for recertification after three years in the program, to show they are maintaining the ACE standards.  

Each certified city receives a plaque and signs to be displayed in prominent locations within their communities. 

“We commend the leadership and many stakeholders of the designated communities for their dedication to ensuring long-term economic success for their communities through the Alabama Communities of Excellence process,” said ACE President and Chairman of the Board Brandon Bias.
