  • A brief history of the organization or a biographical summary of the person as well as any other pertinent information
  • The name, address and telephone number of the requestor
  • An indication of whether the proclamation should be mailed or will be picked up
Requests for a Mayoral letter may be sent to the City Clerk’s Office electronically. A printable request form is also available and may be submitted by fax (252-329-4435), delivery to 200 West Fifth Street, or mail at PO Box 7207, Greenville, NC 27835. Once signed by the Mayor, the original letter is returned to the requestor unless other instructions are given. The Mayor's Office reserves the right to modify or deny any request.
