New Informtion 12-01-22 - 2023 Operational Permit Fee
January 1, 2023 - Operational Permit fees, re-inspection fees and late fees will be effective, in addition to current fees associated with event requirements (i.e. ambulance/fire engine standby).
To provide a clear process for tracking special events and potentially hazardous activities, the Fire District has an Operational Permit program.
To obtain a permit, please submit an application for review at least two (2) weeks prior to the event or activity. It is imperative that our Fire Inspectors have ample time to carefully review the fire risk factors involved and to ensure that code requirements are being met prior to issuing a permit.
