Idaho Falls City Attorney Randy Fife was recognized recently by the Idaho Municipal Attorney’s Association (IMA) with the prestigious Dale Storer Professionalism Award.
Only two other attorneys have been recognized in the state of Idaho since 2011 with the award from the IMA. According to Bill Nary, City Attorney from the city of Meridian, the award is the highest honor they can bestow on a city attorney.
“We have only given this award three times in the last ten years,” said Nary. “This is our organizations’ highest recognition. It is a well-deserved recognition…Randy is very well respected in our association.”
The award, presented as part of the 2018 Service and Achievement Awards, recognized Fife as an individual “attorney who has made a significant, positive contribution to the practice of Idaho municipal law through a demonstration or standard of professionalism, ethics and civility.”
Fife, who has been practicing municipal law for more than 25 years has been the Idaho Falls City Attorney since April of 2013.
“Mr. Fife’s dedication to the work of ensuring fair and accessible government is always evident. One of the things that I appreciate is that just about every opportunity to interact with Mr. Fife as the city’s attorney results in more than an answer to a question,” said Idaho Falls Mayor Rebecca Casper. “I usually receive an education on key governance principles. And that results in better governance. Our city is very fortunate to have an attorney of this caliber.”
