The Chief of Police must authorize all permits. To obtain a permit, the organizer must complete the Parade Application form. It is important to include any attachments such as maps of routes, personnel deployments and safety plans.
Once the permit is received and approved, the organizer will be notified to pick up the permit.
IMPORTANT---- If the parade requires the use of a public street, the use of the street must be approved by the City Council. The council convenes the first and third Monday of each month so please plan accordingly.
