Mayor's Proclamations

Proclamations are issued by the Mayor and recognize special events and occasions. They most often recognize public events, celebrations, and special honors at the discretion of the Mayor.

  • Brief summary of the event, issue, or organization requesting the proclamation
  • Date, time, and location of the event
