The Gables by the Sea Homeowners Association recently expressed their appreciation to Coral Gables city manager Pat Salerno by presenting him with the “Outstanding Community Service Award.”
The award is not given every year; it is presented only when the association feels individuals or organizations merit the recognition. Members of the Gables by the Sea Homeowners Association, representing nearly 1,000 residents, wanted to acknowledge the city manager for his responsiveness to the community’s needs, and his efforts improving the city’s financial stability and quality of life.
“I am grateful for the award. My focus has always been to look out for the interests of our residents,” said Salerno who has been city manager for four years and also is a resident.
The Gables Good Government Committee also has honored him with an award. Throughout his public service career, the city manager has been honored by civic, community, and business organizations for making cities better places to live.
