The City of Lake Charles was presented a plaque for winning "Cleanest City Contest, State Winner, 2013, Category I" at a Wednesday ceremony at Lake Charles City Hall.

The plaque was awarded by representatives from the Louisiana Garden Club Federation Inc.

This was the second consecutive year that the city received the award.

"This award is a very prestigious one, and it clearly makes a statement about our community and its commitment to being a clean and beautiful one, both for those who visit and those who live here," said Lake Charles Mayor Randy Roach.

"Our sincere gratitude goes out to all the many organizations, schools and government entities, businesses and property owners who worked countless hours to help the City of Lake Charles achieve this recognition. We greatly appreciate all their efforts," he continued.

Officials said the city was informed about the honor on May 17 by Kathy Tell, Cleanest City Contest Chairman and member of the Diggers and Weeders Garden Club of Lake Charles.

Category I represents cities with a population of 45,000 to 99,999.
