Special Event Application

Purpose

The purpose of this application is to provide information about your event or activity in order for various departments and agencies to determine if they need to be involved in the approval and/or permitting process. Depending on the specific event, a permit application and/or fee(s) may be required.

RESPONSIBILITIES

The applicant is responsible for providing complete and accurate information on the application, including an attached detailed site plan. The applicant is also responsible for notifying the City Manager's Office of any changes. Incomplete applications will not be accepted. A completed application should be submitted at least 15 days prior to the planned event to allow sufficient review time. Public officials may contact you with specific questions and may require a pre-planning meeting. Some activities will require verification of a Certificate of Liability Insurance for the organization (ie. any activity on a public roadway - See Texas Transportation Code: Chapter 552 for more information). Please see the Special Event Application for details and a full list of responsibilities and requirements.

Priority

Applications and events are prioritized based on a first come-first served basis and the City may approve or disapprove an
event’s requested date based on availability of resources. Events that occur on an annual basis will receive priority the following
year. 

Do not assume, advertise, or promote your event until you have a signed Event/Parade Permit from Mineral Wells Police Department. Conflicts do arise and changes to the request may be necessary.
