  • Must be subject to the approval in writing of the City;
  • Must name the City, its Officials and Representatives as Certificate Holder;
  • Must contain provisions that prohibit cancellation, modification, or lapse without thirty (30) days prior written notice to the City;

Proof may be supplied in two ways: by submitting a completed Certificate of Insurance [PDF], or by submitting an Acord certificate of insurance form with an original signature. Fax copies of insurance certificates are acceptable for issuance of a film permit, but an original copy must be received within fifteen (15) days of the film permit application.
