Process for applying for a Mayoral Proclamation

Throughout the year, Mayor Hamilton recognizes individuals and organizations by issuing a City of Bloomington proclamation in their honor. Proclamations can designate a specific date, week or month of recognition.

All proclamation requests should be submitted to the Office of the Mayor no less than three weeks before the date the proclamation is needed. The request should include complete contact information of the requester as well as the specific day, week or month you would like highlighted.

Examples:

  • November 2017 is Alzheimer’s Awareness Month in Bloomington
  • November 25, 2017, is Small Business Saturday in Bloomington
  • September 8 - 10, 2017, is Kiwanis Balloon Fest Weekend in Bloomington

When requesting a proclamation, you can submit text that you have written or ask the mayor’s staff to write the text that will be included. If choosing the second option, please include as many details as possible about the person, organization or event that you are recognizing.

Once the text has been finalized, a draft of the proclamation will be submitted to you for review.

The final version of the proclamation will be printed and the City of Bloomington seal will be affixed before it is given to Mayor Hamilton to sign.

After the mayor signs the proclamation, it  will be available for pick up at the Front Desk of City Hall between 8:00 am and 5:00 pm Monday through Friday.

To start the proclamation process or for further questions, please contact Diane Daily at 812-349-3400 or dailyd@bloomington.in.gov.
