Proclamations / Resolutions

Many requests come into the Administration Department for proclamations and/or resolutions throughout the year. These documents are utilized by various organizations for their PR efforts about a special event, recognizing an outstanding citizen or a time of year generating awareness for an array of topics. The City of Dalton is happy to fill these requests!
