Optional Permit

When a permit is not required, it is possible to apply for an optional permit. A person wishing to apply for an optional permit would provide much of the same information as someone seeking a required permit (e.g. request for dates, times and locations and contact information). Liability insurance is not required in connection with an optional permit. The optional permit is free of charge. To download the optional permit, click here.
