Private Event and Post-Event Safety
Private – community events define a public entity’s socioeconomic culture, beckoning the potential for tourists, trade, visitors and possible business. More often than not, the events bring additional costs to governance and often cause strife as municipalities attempt to recoup costs of overtime to manage the health and safety of events for not only the taxpayers, but everyone else attending the event. Public safety has become the number one issue of reviewing and approving events for our communities. Achieving consensus is difficult at times, when events are marketed as benefitting a cause of financial assistance for a well-known loss. This webinar will beg questions and thoughtful conversation as to how municipalities can work toward achieving community safety while giving a platform to private community events.
- Learn to identify the risks of private – community events as they relate to your municipality’s operations and safety.
- Recognize the relationships of stakeholders in your government structure as you review and approve events.
- Understand the limitations of your municipality’s application process for private – community events.
- Question the parameters for managing the safety and risks associated with private – community events.
