(A) For any special activities permit issued under the authority of rule 1501:46-3-28 of the Administrative Code the person requesting the permit shall pay a non-refundable application fee of up to fifty dollars to the division to pay administrative costs for the processing of the permit. Exempt from this fee are special activities where the division is the sponsor or a cosponsor.

(B) A special activities permit fee of up to five thousand dollars per day, as determined by the chief, shall be paid by the person requesting the permit. This permit fee is based on the event size, location, type of use, and impact on the use of the park by the general public.

(C) Where the chief has approved a special activity which is not exclusively sponsored by the division, and the special activity requires the division to incur additional labor, material, or utility costs as a direct result of the activity, the special activities permit fees specified in paragraph (A) and (B) of this rule may be increased to an amount equal to the additional costs to be incurred by the division to provide those services and materials to support the event.

(D) At division sponsored events where the chief has approved the sale of items other than food and beverages by a special activities permit, a vendor permit fee not to exceed seventy-five dollars per day may be charged to each vendor to defray a portion of the cost of the event.

(E) At division sponsored events where the chief has approved the sale of food or beverages by a special activities permit, a permit fee not to exceed fifteen per cent of the gross receipts from the sale of food and beverages may be charged to each vendor selling food or beverages. The permit fee shall be paid to the division within thirty days after the event and be accompanied by an accurate financial statement in a format specified by the chief.
