Fee Schedules

The following schedules represent fees that offset the cost of multiple City services. These fees may include staff review, permits for road closure and or right-of-way obstruction, contact lists, map templates, and in some cases, engineered traffic control plans. They do not include fire permits, complex engineered traffic control plans, portable restrooms, barricades and no-parking signs, business licenses, trash/recyclable pickup, or police officers.  As an applicant, you may be required to incur other expenses which are the sole responsibility of the applicant/event coordinator. Please contact the Special Events Office at (253) 573-2523 with questions.
