What is a Proclamation?

Proclamations are ceremonial documents issued and signed by the Mayor that officially recognize the importance of a person, an event, a campaign, or an organization for a certain day, week or month. 

Proclamations are noted by the Mayor at the end of each Council meeting as an information item.  The Mayor will read the proclamation title, organization's name, and the date the proclamation is in effect. Please note that the text of the proclamation will not be read aloud.
