Proclamations are read at the beginning of every regularly-scheduled Burlington City Council meeting.
A proclamation is an official announcement issued by the Mayor to recognize exceptional events, groups, people, or achievements in the City of Burlington. The goal of a proclamation is to recognize and celebrate achievements, and to raise public awareness of important issues in Burlington.
For more information on how to submit a request for a proclamation, please visit the City’s dedicated Proclamations webpage.
