Environmental Health - Group Functions


What is a Group Function?

Group function" means one thousand (1,000) or more persons simultaneously gathered in a common area, both public and private, for three hours or more. Group function does not include a gathering at a permanent facility such as a theater, auditorium, or stadium where there are permanent facilities available, and normal operational procedures in place.

A permit from the Environmental Health Division is required for any Group Function not expressly exempt.  Applications must be in our office at least 45 days in advance of the event.

How do I apply for a Permit?

How much is a permit?

Group Function permits are $225 for the first 1000 participants and $28 for each additional thousand participants based on the last year's attendance. For first year events, 1000 participants are presumed unless other information is available.
