The City of Olathe, KS, has become a popular destination for charitable 5Ks and while we want to accommodate these special events for our community, the cost and time, both in people and resources is getting to be difficult. I am looking for some best practices on special event permitting and regulation on how many events can be scheduled on any one day. We currently only charge $15 per permit and no charge for all the traffic, police, fire etc. Our Council has not been willing to charge due to the charitable nature of the events. Thoughts, insights, and best practices would be much appreciated.
