Proclamations and Resolutions

This section contains proclamations and resolutions from the New Florence borough council.  To help town residents understand what they are and how they are different, a simple explanation follows.  A Resolution is a declaration passed by a legislative body, like a borough council or a state legislature to officially express the opinion or will of a legislative body typically after taking a vote; a Proclamation is a similar declaration issued by an executive branch official or person of authority, like a borough council President, a state Governor, or a mayor to make certain announcements known, especially ones dealing with matters of great importance. Though not binding law, resolutions and proclamations are important statements about shared beliefs and values. Resolutions can also be endorsed by non-governmental bodies like school governments, or faith-based social justice committees, or even businesses or labor unions.
