It was a banner day for Collier Township.

The township was honored Friday with recognition from state legislators after being named a 2013 Banner Community by the Allegheny League of Municipalities in April.

“This is a richly deserved honor for Collier Township,” said state Rep. Mark Mustio (R-44).

The township was one of 21 Western Pennsylvania municipalities given the honor, which recognizes those that practice inclusive, transparent, collaborative government.

State Sen. Matt Smith (D-37) noted the township's recent strides in collaborative, open government, including a new, rebranded website and newsletter.

“These are all things Collier has taken the lead on,” Smith said.

“It is unique in many ways, but it is also a fast-growing community in Pennsylvania.”

He lauded township officials for their push toward inclusive government.

“This is the work of a great commission – the work of a great manager like Sal (Sirabella),” he said.

Sirabella said it's all the commissioners.

“The commissioners give us the vision to create this transparent and accessible government for our residents,” he said.
