  • § 4507. Criteria for imposing conditions on permit

    (a) If there is a reasonable likelihood that an assembly will substantially harm the public health or safety, the permit officer shall grant the permit upon conditions reasonably necessary to avoid substantial harm to the public health or safety.

    (b) The permit officer may impose conditions to ensure that:

    (1) public sanitation, food, water, and emergency medical facilities are adequate;

    (2) the time, place and duration of the assembly is suitable in view of the number of persons expected to attend;

    (3) measures for controlling the crowd and managing the assembly are adequate;

    (4) the assembly will not substantially impair the provision of fire and police protection and medical and other essential public services;

    (5) the assembly will not unreasonably interfere with the quiet enjoyment of a residential community;

    (6) litter incidental to the assembly will be removed and disposed of;

    (7) the person holding the public assembly furnishes an adequate bond or arranges other financial security in a reasonable amount to insure reimbursement of a political subdivision, the state of Vermont, or any police agency, for the cost of additional law enforcement officers required to meet any other condition.
