Certificates of Achievement, Commendation and/or Service are given to residents, businesses and groups that have achieved something significant or have given exceptional service to the community. Certificates are signed by the Mayor.
Certificates given at a community event may be presented by the Mayor or another Council Member if the Mayor is not in attendance.
Certificates may be given to Arcadia residents, Arcadia businesses, or to an individual, business or organization that has provided service directly to the City of Arcadia. Certificates may be presented as a "gesture of good will" to a non-Arcadia person or organization that is celebrating a milestone or has achieved something significant.
A Proclamation may be prepared for a special occasion or commemorative event and may be presented at a City Council meeting or a specific event. Reasons for issuing a proclamation are wide ranging; however, they should always have some connection to the City of Arcadia. Proclamations are always signed by the sitting Mayor.
The City Council does not issue proclamations for non-City activities, for mass "national ____ week/month" campaigns or for legislative matters.
If you have any questions, please contact the Executive Assistant to the City Council at (626) 574-5403.
