When should the special event permit application be turned in?

Special Event Permit applications and all supporting documents must be received not less than (90) days prior to the event date. Applications submitted fewer than 90 days prior to the event date may be denied. Do not include payment with the application; the event sponsor will be invoiced by the Police Department after the permit application has been processed and approved.
