The City of North Liberty developed a Community Hall of Fame Award for the purpose of recognizing individuals who have provided extraordinary public service and dedication to the city and its citizens. Persons who are eligible must live, work or provide services directly to North Liberty citizens.

Selection Criteria

  • Selection will be based on service rendered to the community. This includes services based on material contributions as well as personal public service contributions.
  • Special consideration will be given to those persons who have demonstrated a high level of volunteer leadership.
  • Services provided by participation in volunteer organizations and local groups are also important.
  • Longevity in public service is important but not totally compelling in determining the receipt of this award.
  • Community impact is the final criteria in determining the worthiness of a person receiving this award.
  • A person must have demonstrated a high degree of personal commitment and personal sacrifice to the community.

Selection Process

Nominations will be accepted from the general public being presented to the City Clerk’s Office at a specific time and date. The Selection Committee is comprised of the Mayor and City Council. Nomination forms will be available for formal nomination.

Awards will be presented at a formal fall or winter banquet or other venue as determined by the city elected officials.
