Special Events Permit

The City of Cleburne strives to work with residents, businesses, area organizations, schools, churches and other entities in the provision of special events. In doing so, the City has established a Special Event Review Team (SERT) consisting of representatives from the departments of Police, Fire, Parks and Recreation, Public Works and Administration. 

The SERT is responsible for accepting applications, reviewing proposals and working with applicants to ensure that the process is as efficient as possible and that events follow City guidelines and policies. The SERT and the City of Cleburne are committed to achieving a process that is responsive to the applicant, provides accurate and clear information, and encourages community and private events that are safe, enjoyable and well coordinated.
