Please be advised the request for 30.06 signage for an event with minors will need to be submitted as a work order with a department FOP.  The department will not be charged for the temporary 30.06 signage unless the signs are not returned or are severely damaged.  

Before issuing a Work Order, we will also require documentation of approval from Kimberly Simon and her team.
