City Proclamations

National Night Out Signing


Proclamations are issued by the Mayor's Office to provide an opportunity for the Mayor and City Council to recognize exceptional events, groups or people.


The goal of a proclamation is to recognize and celebrate the extraordinary achievements of city residents and non‐profit organizations, to honor occasions of importance and significance to the residents of Sumter and to increase public awareness of issues with the hope of improving the well‐being of citizens of Sumter.


Proclamations recognize a day or week and in some cases the month.

Proclamation Guidelines

Requests must be submitted four weeks prior to the due date. Some groups have suggested proclamations which may be submitted for consideration. Any draft language submitted may be edited or revised without notice at the discretion of the Mayor’s Office. As proclamations are within the discretion of the Mayor, some requests may not be granted.
