Special Events

The Special Events policy is adopted as a guide to establish minimum standards governing the use of Borough property, including roads and streets, for special events that are not sponsored by the Borough. The objective of this policy is to insure the safest possible conditions for event participants and spectators and to protect the Borough against loss incurred as a result of any activities allowed in conjunction with the event. 

Quick Overview

  • Submit Application for Use of Borough Property Including Streets
  • Provide Certificate of Insurance naming Borough as additional insured
  • Obtain permission from Police Department, when necessary
  • If event requires Police involvement, submit second application to Town, with a separate (second) Certificate of Insurance naming Town as additional insured
  • Each of the three parties involved, Borough, Town & Police have their individual requirements. Contact the Town or Police Department with further questions regarding their procedures.

Full details follow below.

Policy & Permission Form

An APPLICATION FOR USE OF BOROUGH PROPERTY must be submitted to the Warden and Burgesses at least thirty (30) days in advance of the event for approval of the event, date, and location of event to be held. The Warden and Burgesses usually meet on the 3rd Monday of each month (or the Tuesday following the 3rd Monday if Monday is a holiday).

Insurance

Organizations or parties wishing to use Borough property are required to provide insurance for their event.   A CERTIFICATE OF INSURANCE must be submitted to the Warden and Burgesses together with the Application For Use of Borough Property at least thirty (30) days prior to the event. For organizations without an insurance policy, a special program is offered by CIRMA, the Borough's Insurance carrier, called T.U.L.I.P (Tenant Users Liability Insurance Program) which offers low cost, single event coverage. That might be an option for you.  Read the brochure for all of the details.  Should you wish to pursue this coverage, please use the sign in code: 0501-CUV.

Town & Police Involvement

If your event requires police involvement (parades, walks, runs, etc.), you will need to coordinate with the Police Department - (860) 599-4411.

 

In addition, because the Police Department falls under the umbrella of the Town of Stonington, your organization will need to complete a separate application for the Town (form below).  Insurance for the Town naming them as additional insured would also be required.  Contact the Town Hall with your questions at (860) 535-5002.

ATTENTION BAYVIEW AVENUE RESIDENTS:

The Borough plans to repave Bayview from Elm to Elihu in early Otober.

Weather permitting the project will be done the week of October 8th.  Contact me with questions or concerns.

Jeff Callahan, Street Commissioner (860) 908-6530.

After seven months of work, the Borough Charter Revision Commission forwarded its final report to the Board of Warden & Burgesses in mid-August.  At its regular monthly meeting on August 20th, the Board unanimously approved the report, which is found here.   The most significant changes in the revised charter are to reduce the number of burgesses on the Board from six to four;  to consolidate commissioner duties among the five members of the Board; to make the position of clerk-treasurer an appointed rather than elected position; and to eliminate the position of tax collector.  The revised charter will be on the ballot in the next Borough election in May 2019.
