City Council has deferred the adoption of a fee schedule for special event application permits until 2018.
There are fees, however, associated with hosting an event, depending on the nature of the event. Examples include additional permits and licenses required, such as tent permits, City business licenses, catering/picnic liquor licenses. Events requiring extra duty police officers also incur charges and additional worker’s compensation coverage. Events taking place in Parks and the Springfield Expo Center grassy lot, require rental fees and contract agreements.
