Special Recognition and Presentations

The City of Decatur Recognition Presentations are comprised of congratulatory letters, certificates, and proclamations. Each presentation is ceremonial in nature and is issued by the Mayor. They are intended to honor and celebrate special events, significant issues or increase awareness of programs and people that make Decatur the place that it is.

Requests for Proclamations should be made in writing and delivered to the City Secretary's office at least 10 working days in advance of when it is needed. Typically, only one Proclamation is issued for each event, and duplicate originals are not provided.

Requests should provide the following information:

  • The specific title of what will be proclaimed, and why the event/issue is of importance to the City as a whole.
  • The date of the Proclamation/Special Recognition, and the date to be presented.
  • A clear and concise description of the event or issue containing enough information to make four points; and/or draft language and background of the person, organization or event being proclaimed.
  • The name, telephone number, and email address (where applicable) of the contact person making the request, as well as the name and address of the person to receive the signed Proclamation/Special Recognition.
