Requests for mayoral proclamations and other ceremonial documents shall be submitted to the Office of the Mayor for consideration. Proclamation sponsors should provide their request to the Mayor along with a draft proclamation for consideration at least 30 days in advance of the event by email, or by mail to:

City of Tumwater
Mayor’s Office
555 Israel Road SW
Tumwater, WA 98501

In order to issue a proclamation, the following will be considered:

  • Preference will be given to proposals of local concern which specifically impact the citizens or businesses of Tumwater, or from organizations which represent or provide service to a majority of Tumwater citizens in an endeavor to contribute to the quality of life in the City.

  • Only one proclamation will be issued per year, per organization. Each renewal request will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

  • Proposals for proclamations promoting for-profit causes will generally not be considered.

  • Proposals which recognize individuals will generally not be considered unless they concern Tumwater citizens or business owners who have made a significant contribution to the City of Tumwater or City employees and officials who are recognized for their service to the City.

  • Proposals which promote a position on a pending ballot or legislative issue will not be considered. Pending ballot or legislative issues must be prepared by a Council resolution sponsored by a member of the City Council following procedures specified in State Public Disclosure Law.

Submission of a proclamation request does not guarantee issuance. Ultimately, the proclamation is issued by the Mayor and the Mayor reserves the right to reject or modify a proclamation in any way.
