Parades and Public Events have to have council approval. The application does not go to council until after the RASE board approves. Once the event is approved by the R.A.S.E. Board, it will then go to the next approval process.
If a state highway is to be affected by closure, this application will need to:
101 EAST EDWARDSVILLE ROAD • WOOD RIVER, IL
