One of our ELGL members has a question about costing for public safety services for community events – and wants YOUR feedback (yes, YOU):
Question: Does your local government have an intergovernmental agreement or ordinance related to charging community groups for police and/or fire services? If so, what is the agreement? Do different groups receive different rates, or is it handled on a case-by-case basis? Do any events receive donated services by your municipality?
1. The local high school pays a flat fee to have police officers present at football games.
2. A civic group pays to have police and fire at their annual summer bash in the park.
