To request a proclamation, special recognition or letter, please complete a request form at least 30 days prior to issuance.

Proclamations, special recognitions and letters issued by the Office of the Mayor provide an opportunity for Mayor Fulk to recognize exceptional events and people in Allen. These are issued for civic celebrations, organizations and individuals celebrating significant events or contributions to society. 

  • Letter: A letter of greeting / congratulations for souvenir booklets, conferences and seminars of a 50th or greater anniversary, birthdays over age 90, or family reunions held in Allen.
  • Proclamation: A formal declaration of a day/week/month in honor a special event.

The Office of the City Secretary is responsible for the preparation of all honorariums on behalf of the Mayor and City Councilmembers. Specific criteria for the issuance of documents has been established and the City Secretary will assess what type of honorarium, if any, can be issued. Preparation of certificates may be limited, as mass distribution leads to it losing its significance.
