(b) In addition to the requirements of Subsection (a), above, an applicant that intends to allow participants to possess or consume alcoholic beverages during the event must file an application for a "special permit," as required under Section 606.01(c), with the Director of Public Safety, and pay an additional application fee at City Hall, as established from time to time by the City Council. The application for the special permit must designate, among other information, (1) the expected number of participants, (2) the hours during which alcoholic beverages will be served during the event, (3) the hours during which alcoholic beverages will be allowed to be possessed or consumed during the event, and (4) the methods used to prevent possession or consumption by minors and non-participants.
