A resolution is an administrative action taken by the Board of County Commissioners to agree to County business and transactions. A resolution may be issued to express the board’s policy, direct administrative or legal action, or to make a public statement from the board. A “motion” is used by the board to indicate approval or denial of a procedural action. Except in cases of emergency or a suspension of the rules, resolutions are adopted during regular session meetings of the board.
A proclamation is a ceremonial document issued by the board that may be used to formally recognize certain events, causes, groups or people. Please note that, unlike resolutions, proclamations are not legally binding and should not be interpreted as a policy endorsement.
