Tisbury annual report wins award

Tisbury’s 2007 annual town report won second place in a statewide contest held by the Massachusetts Municipal Association (MMA), in the category for towns with populations less than 5,000.

Judges considered layout and design, quantity and depth of information, organization, originality, and overall usefulness of the report to residents, according to the MMA’s website.

Assistant town administrator Aase Jones organized Tisbury’s annual report and oversaw its production. The Tisbury selectmen have asked Ms. Jones to accept the award for the report on the town’s behalf at a ceremony on January 24 at the MMA’s annual conference in Boston.

The 2007 annual report’s cover features a photograph taken by Selectman Denys Wortman of the Steamship Authority ferry Islander leaving the port of Vineyard Haven for the last time, as she passes by the new Island Home ferry, arriving for the first time.

Tisbury’s 2005 annual report also won second place in the MMA’s 2006 contest.
