The mayor of Birtle is back for another term as president of the Association of Manitoba Municipalities.

Ron Bell took the position by acclamation. He's grateful to delegates for their support, and wants to immediately tackle many issues before the AMM.

Bell is pleased with the way municipal leaders have worked together over the last year, and expects to make great strides in 2007.

Delegates are meeting in Winnipeg this week for their 8th annual convention.
