I have had my event for 10 years. Why do I need a special event permit now?
-It is our goal to enhance the quality of life and economic prosperity of Denison through supporting special events while balancing the needs of our residents and businesses affected by these events. The permit process was created to ensure events are carried out safely, thoroughly, and properly.
Why do events require insurance?
-The special event must carry property, bodily injury, and municipal liability insurance of $1,000,000.00 per occurrence.This is to ensure that the event organizer as well as the City is not held liable in any incident, accident, or emergency situation.
Why is an explanation required for advertising campaigns?
-Per City Ordinance, signs cannot be attached to trees or utility poles, fences or outside of abandoned buildings. It is our goal to assist event organizers but we are responsible for upholding all rules and regulations per our code enforcement department.
