City Government


Proclamations help to create a public awareness of special events and are intended for the betterment of the community. Occasionally the City receives requests from organizations or internal departments to declare or proclaim certain dates for specific causes (e.g. Race Relations Week, International Women’s Day, etc.). A proclamation may be issued for a day, a week or a month.
