On Friday, Sept.15, City of Bryan Planning staff members accepted the 2023 General Plan Award from the American Planning Association Texas Chapter’s Central Section.
The City of Bryan’s Vital Statistics Office was recently honored by the Texas Department of Health and Human Services. The Vital Statistics Office received the Exemplary Five Star Award for Local Registrars for the 22nd consecutive year.
This award acknowledges the Vital Statistics staff who understand the importance of vital records and their impact on the residents of Texas. It honors agencies who go above and beyond the duties of birth and death registration by attending training and keeping up with the latest legislation and trends.
To receive the Exemplary award, agencies must attend trainings throughout the year, score a low or moderate risk on an annual self-assessment survey, register 100% of their birth and death records within one business day, and have good security measures in place for the Remote Access Birth System.
Deputy Local Registrar Cindy Vargas leads the City Secretary’s Office of Vital Statistics.
