The City of Taylor will issue proclamations at no charge to recognize or increase awareness of an event, person, group, issue, achievement, or any other occasion within Taylor. The Mayor of Taylor will make the final decision on whether a proclamation will be issued or not.
Each request must be made in writing through the City Clerk’s Office. Applications for proclamations will not be accepted more than three months before the proposed City Council Meeting and no later than 14 days before the proposed City Council Meeting or event where the proclamation will be read. Each request must be accompanied by:
The name of the organization or person requesting the proclamation
A proposed date for the presentation of the proclamation
The name, telephone number, and email address of at least one person who will provide more information about the proposed proclamation, and
A specific title of what will be proclaimed; including name, day of the week, week, or month to be proclaimed.
Before a proclamation is approved, the requestor must provide detailed information for the proclamation. Any draft language is subject to edits and revisions by the City without notice. The City Clerk’s Office will work with the Mayor or necessary Councilmembers to finalize the text of the proclamation.
Anyone requesting a proclamation for an annual event must provide a new application and information each year. Proclamations are NOT automatically renewed.
Proclamations are granted on a first-come, first-served basis. Because there is a limit to the number of proclamations presented during City Council meetings, the sooner a proper request for a proclamation is made, the more likely it will be presented at the meeting you request. If there are too many proclamations on the agenda, your requested proclamation may have to be postponed until another date.
