Proclamations are issued by the Mayor to recognize the importance of a community event, significant achievements by a community member, or to signal Lauderhill’s role in significant events.
Other reasons may be allowed, but Mayoral Proclamations typically must have a specific connection to Lauderhill, such as highlighting an event taking place in Lauderhill or honoring a Lauderhill resident or business. The issuance of a Proclamation is solely within the Mayor’s authority to grant and to place it on a City Commission Agenda. It may be requested by anyone.
Depending on the desire of the requesting party, Proclamations may be read at a City Commission meeting (for which someone will be needed to be present to receive), or at the community event being recognized, depending entirely on the schedule of the Mayor or his designee. Proclamations may also be forwarded to the requested party without a formal presentation. Original signed proclamations will be provided to the requesting party.
Requestors are typically asked to provide draft language for the proclamation, as well as how they would like the signed proclamation delivered. Proclamations requested at least one month in advance have the best chance of being completed and provided to the requestor by a specific date.
To request a Mayoral Proclamation contact the Mayor’s Office by e-mail or letter to City Hall.
