Certificates

Certificates are for the purpose of acknowledging or honoring an individual or organization for a specific distinction or award. Each certificate will be signed by Supervisor Hewitt. You can also request certificates to be signed by the entire Board of Supervisors. If you are requesting a certificate signed by the Board of Supervisors, please indicate that within your request.

Guidelines: Your request for certificates must be submitted via by phone, email, or postal mail. If you are submitting your request via email request please make sure to include the required information: title of the honoree (if any), name of the honoree / organization, and the specific award the honoree / organization is receiving for which you are requesting a certificate. A list of award recipients in a word document or a Microsoft excel document is highly recommended.

Proclamations

Proclamations are formal legal sized documents that are signed by each member of the Board of Supervisors. Proclamations are created for a variety of purposes such as: significant community events, celebratory months / days / weeks, holidays, and to recognize ceremony honorees.

Guidelines: Your request for a proclamation must be submitted via by phone, email, or postal mail. Be sure to include a copy of a bio of the honoree, community event, month(s) / day(s) / week(s), holiday(s) being honored for a proclamation to be completed.
