Public Event Permit

All Applications are subject to approval by the Director of Finance and Business Operations or designee. If approved, a Public Event Permit shall be issued which shall be in the possession of the applicant at all times during the Public Event, and shall be subject to inspection by City staff. Other permits and/or licenses may be required in addition to the Public Event Permit, depending upon the nature of the public event. City staff is available to provide assistance with such other permits and/or licenses. A properly issued Public Event Permit shall serve as a Special Event Permit. Reservation of City park areas, picnic shelters and special game facilities for non-public events does not require a Public Event Permit, but does require a park permit and/or rental agreement. Contact the Cedar Falls Recreation Center at (319) 273-8636 for assistance.

The Administration Committee shall consider such appeal within 21 days of the filing of the appeal, if practicable.
