To the .gov Program:
As [authorizing authority] for [City/County], I request that responsibility for the domain name [___________.gov] be delegated to my municipality.
[Briefly describe the mission or initiative that drives the domain name request, explaining what the domain name will be used for.]
In order to obtain and maintain [___________.gov] [City/County] will meet the general and specific requirements for federal agencies, found at https://home.dotgov.gov/registration/requirements.
The following will be listed as contacts for [___________.gov], which [City/County] will keep up to date in the .gov registrar.
[Administrative, billing, and technical contacts are named individuals and must be unique; a security contact should generally be a team email address.
As of April 26, 2021, .gov domains no longer have a fee associated with them. However, the .gov registrar has not yet been updated to remove the billing contact role. Until then, you may consider the billing contact to be a secondary administrative contact.]
Security contact [recommended]
I understand that if I wish to retire [___________.gov], I must submit a written request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
