NOTE: At this time the application process for outdoor events which require the Mayor’s approval has been suspended. Events which had been previously approved but are forthcoming on the calendar are canceled. This decision is based on increased COVID-19 infection rates, city and county wide, as reported by the Health Authorities. As the epidemic continues to spread, the Mayor’s duty to safeguard the health and welfare of the community as a whole have necessitated this step.
At this time, the City will not accept applications for outdoor events, and will abide by the City and Governor’s order prohibiting non-exempt outdoor events in excess of ten people. The Outdoor Application process will resume when the COVID-19 positivity rate has decreased to ensure the safety of our community.
Consistent with the Texas Governor's Executive Order GA-32 of October 7, 2020, local outdoor events of ten or more people are not allowed unless the event is either an exempted activity or approved by Mayor. This page outlines the process/requirements for requesting permission to hold an event that is not exempted. While this process calls for the planning of appropriate protocols and mitigation measures, the approval by the Mayor is discretionary.
