No person shall permit, maintain, promote, conduct, advertise, act as entrepreneur, undertake, organize, manage, sell or give tickets to an actual or reasonably anticipated assembly of one hundred fifty (150) or more people, whether on public or private property unless a “Notice of Mass Gathering” is received by the Mass Gathering Review Committee Coordinator to determine whether a Mass Gathering Permit Application is required. The applicant will receive notice within fourteen (14) days from submission of the Notice of Mass Gathering whether a permit is required or not. To hold an assembly deemed needing a full permit, the Mass Gathering Permit has to be issued by the Board of County Commissioners, application for which must be submitted to the Boise County Clerk at least ninety(90) days in advance of the event. The Mass Gathering Review Committee may determine that events exceeding one hundred (150) attendees but less than two hundred (200) may also need to secure a permit from the Board of Commissioners.
All Mass Gathering Permit applications received by the Clerk’s office will be forwarded to the Mass Gathering Review Committee. The Boise County MGRC Coordinator will forward the same notification to Boise County Dispatch and all Fire, EMS and other applicable agencies as determined by the Sheriff and Emergency Manager.
