CHELAN — Rep. Cary Condotta will be presented tonight with a 2014 Municipal Champion Award by the Association of Washington Cities.

The East Wenatchee lawmaker is set to receive the award from Mike McCarty, AWC’s CEO, during a City Council meeting that begins at 6 p.m. at City Hall, 135 E. Johnson Ave.

Condotta earned the AWC award for sponsoring legislation that would allow cities to share in revenues from the sale of recreational marijuana. Five Municipal Champion Awards, launched this year, will be presented in 2014.

Whether you agree with (Initiative 502) or not, it passed,” said Condotta. “Now we must make sure we have the most functional, efficient and safe system in place as possible. Part of that is making sure local governments have the tools to succeed.”

He added, “A big piece of that is funding” on the municipal level to pay for I-502 implementation.
