Valdosta - A South Georgia city manager is recognized for his commitment to city government.

Valdosta City Manager Larry Hanson is this year's recipient of the Georgia Excellence in Public Service Award. He's the first elected or appointed professional from South Georgia to get the distinction.

The award is given by Georgia Trend Magazine and UGA's Carl Vinson Institute of Government. It recognizes leadership, promotion of citizen involvement, and public service. "Its a very good feeling but one that could only be experienced by so many people in this city doing a good job, even an award is a team effort," said Hanson.

Hanson has worked with the city of Valdosta for 29 years, serving as city manager for nine years.

He was recognized at an awards ceremony in Atlanta and is featured in this month's issue of Georgia Trend Magazine.
