Policy for issuing keys to the city and proclamations

Kelly Kresser

Does your community have a policy governing:

1) issuance of keys to the city, and;
2) issuance of proclamations

If so, is it possible to see the content of your policy so that we can begin to develop one?

Hi Kelly,

I found a few examples of polices from various jurisdictions that should prove useful.

  • City of Artesia, California Policy for Issuance of proclamations provides their consideration process for proclamations, and other recognitions. http://www.cityofart..

  • City of Tallahassee, Florida Ceremonial Recognition Policy provides the scope and applicability, for proclamations, plaques and certificates of appreciation and Large and Small Keys to the city.

  • City of Calgary, Canada proclamation policy provides requirements and procedure.

And two examples of Issuance of Proclamation request forms:
- Seattle, WA Guidelines and Request Form
- City of Fresno, CA online request form

I hope this is useful,
