The City of Fillmore advises all local non-profit organizations that applications will be available Wednesday, April 13th, for 2016 firework booth permits.
Applications will be accepted until 4 p.m. on Friday, May 27th in the City Clerk’s office at Fillmore City Hall, 250 Central Avenue. The fee is $400.00; all organizations must provide proof of non-profit status and complete a “no fee” business license application.
The City’s Municipal Code (Section 15.38.030) requires applicants to be a non-profit association or corporation organized primarily for veteran, patriotic, welfare, city betterment, religious or charitable purposes, having on file with the City of Fillmore proof of non-profit status from either the IRS, California Secretary of State or the State Attorney General, having its principal and permanent meeting place in the City, and having been organized and established in the City for a minimum of three years continuously preceding the filing of the permit application.
A maximum of 25 permits will be issued, and priority will be given to organizations that were grandfathered and issued permits in 2015 and continue to be eligible. If necessary, a lottery will be held in early June to randomly determine which organizations will receive permits in addition to the qualified organizations.
Fireworks sales may occur within the City limits from Tuesday, June 28th at twelve o’clock noon through Tuesday, July 5th at twelve o’clock noon.
IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU COMPLETE THE 2016 APPLICATION – THE CITY WILL NOT ACCEPT APPLICATIONS FROM PREVIOUS YEARS.
