The applicant states <br />they are a volunteer-based non-profit organization and did not <br />budget for a $5,000 cash or bond for the event. <br /> <br />· The Prosecutor’s office has approved the insurance <br />information. <br />· The Fire Marshal has approved the event, stating there are no <br />life safety/fire code issues that need to be addressed and no <br />additional permit is required from their office. <br />· The Solid Waste department is currently waiting to receive a <br />recycling plan from the applicant before they will recommend <br />approving it. <br />· The Sheriff has indicated there is no need for security for the <br />event and that past events have not been any problem <br />however, they did request written verification on what EMS <br />personnel will be available. (ACS has since provided a list <br />naming specific EMS personnel who will be available at the <br />event). <br />· The Public Works Department indicated they have no <br />problems with the application. <br />· At the time of the Staff Report being produced, the Public <br />Health had not submitted their recommendation. <br />
