Ceremonial Recognitions

Recognizing People, Organizations, and Causes

An individual or group may be formally recognized through ceremonial recognitions (resolution, proclamation or citizen recognition award). The Mayor is generally invited to participate in these recognitions. 


Resolutions recognize the collective efforts of an individual, group or organization. 


Proclamations designate the focus of a specific day, week or month in Ogden City. 

Citizen Recognition Award

Citizen recognition awards note the contributions of an individual, group or organization, for either a long-standing contribution or a specific act within 12 months of the recognition. 

At the Meeting

During the City Council meeting, a Council member will read the ceremonial recognition. If it is a resolution or proclamation, a vote will be taken. The Chair will then invite the individual or group being honored to come forward and receive the recognition and be congratulated by Council members. The recipient(s) will then have the opportunity to comment and have a photo taken with the Council.

Recognition Requests

Recognition requests will be reviewed by Council leadership. To request a recognition, contact your Council member or the City Council Office.
