Shelters can be reserved by completing the Shelter Reservation Permit. It is recommended that you turn in your completed form in person at City Hall with the payment (cash, check or credit card – convenience fee may apply) in order to secure your reservation at the time of your visit. A reservation is not considered complete until the signed application is received, the shelter is confirmed available and payment is received.
Grills are provided at each shelter for your convenience. There is an additional $30.00 charge for the use of a self-contained BBQ Cooker.
