Presented at Commission meetings, proclamations help raise community awareness

At many meetings of the St. Augustine City Commission the first order of business after the roll call, invocation and Pledge of Allegiance is a recognition of a local organization or an annual awareness campaign through the issuance of a proclamation.

The presentation of a proclamation at a commission meeting offers the leadership of an organization the opportunity to receive an official document in an official setting that may express support of an annual awareness campaign or congratulations to an organization of an upcoming significant anniversary.

If an organization would like to have a proclamation, the process is not difficult. By contacting the City Clerk’s office and providing some general information about the activity or campaign to be recognized, city staff will handle the formatting and schedule the presentation.

Complete guidelines and details on the parameters of what may and may not be recognized by the commission with a proclamation, is available by visiting and clicking on City Clerk under the Government tab.
