  • Special Event Fees - Effective July 1, 2012

    The General Fee Schedule is adopted by City Council annually and becomes effective on July 1st of each year.  Please check off all of the fees that apply to your proposed event to create an estimate for any potential event fees.  Hourly public safety personnel fees (police & fire) are not listed below.  Please submit an event application to obtain an estimate of these fees.  

    Below are the base fees associated with rentals of the various locations (Public Right-of-Way, Parks, & City Hall).  Permit fees for all other aspects of an event (amplified sound, tents, food vendors, electrical, stage, etc.) follow behind the locations.
