Northborough Awarded in MMA's Town Report Contest
The town didn't get first place again, but landed in the top three.
"Our little town of Northborough took second place," said Town Administrator John Coderre.
Next year, he joked that "we'd do better."

The MMA applauds your efforts in making this publication an effective tool for your community."
The certificates will be presented at a ceremony at the Boston Sheraton Hotel on Jan. 26.
