  3. The City Administrator, with approval from the Mayor, reserves the right to approve or decline the production of a proclamation request and to edit any drafted material for final wording.
  4. Each proclamation request MUST come from an Oregon resident, preferrable from a Curry County resident. This includes requests from national, international, or out of state organizations.
