A special event paperwork workshop and information night is taking place next month on Chatham.

Municipal officials say for an event to take place on municipal property, such as a roadway, park, or arena, a Special Event application to the municipality is required to receive prior approval.

For organizers seeking to understand the Special Event application process for events held on municipal property, administration is offering a Special Event Paperwork and Information workshop.

The workshop will be held in Council Chambers at the Chatham Civic Centre on April 10, 2019, from 7 p.m to 9 p.m.

“Although the process isn’t arduous, it is necessary to ensure public safety,” said Jeff Bray, Manager, Parks and Open Spaces, in a press release.

“Organizer planning events on municipal property are required to make application. We are striving to make the process efficient and easy for organizers.”
