Red Tape May Be Cut on Small-Scale Events


Businesses and organizations should have an easier time putting on special events if the City Council approves a plan today that cuts red tape and costs for promotions that draw fewer than 500 people.

Existing law requires hosts of smaller events to go through the same requirements as those putting on bigger ones. Sponsors must obtain insurance, pay $100 in city fees and seek input from the Police Department and other agencies.

Tonight’s proposal, which won preliminary council approval last month, streamlines the process and reduces the fee to $50.


The council meets at 7 p.m. in City Hall, 10200 Slater Ave.
