With a deep sadness in our hearts we inform that today we lost Mr. Mico Micic (1956-2020), NALAS President 2017-2018, member of NALAS Presidency 2014-2017, former Mayor of the City of Bijeljina and President of the Association of Municipalities and Towns of the Republic of Srpska, Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Mr. Micic will be remembered for his unique leadership, wisdom, support and inspiration in leading and developing our Network. In the same time, he touched our hearts with his friendliness, kindness and care and the positive aura in everything he did. Thus, today we mourn for a great professional and a true friend.

Under Mr. Micic’s leadership, the City of Bijeljina grew into a prosperous city that unselfishly shares its good practices with the peers within our Network. These days, while we intensively support the localisation of the Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in South-East Europe, we have Bijeljina as a guiding star. Mr. Micic’s leadership and commitment to leave no one behind made and will continue to make a difference long after the physical valedictory.     

We extend our sincere condolences to Mr. Micic’s family, the City of Bijeljina and the Association of Municipalities and Towns of the Republic of Srpska.

Mr. Micic’s presence will always be missed among us. What we can promise is that we will proudly continue his mission for strengthening local government and improving people’s lives.
