The permit application shall be reviewed by the City Administrator or his/her designee, Chief of Police, Street Foreman and other interested City officials and may be denied if, in the opinion of the Chief of Police the conduct of the parade along the streets or highways or portions thereof on the date requested would unduly interfere with the flow of vehicular traffic or would otherwise be such so as to hinder or unduly interfere with the proper protection, safety, health, welfare and well-being of the citizens of the City of Breckenridge. In the event of the denial of the permit, the City Administrator or his/her designee shall advise the applicant, in writing, of the reason or reasons of the denial of the application.

Any parade conducted pursuant to a permit issued pursuant to the terms of this chapter shall be conducted so as not to obstruct any roadways, highways or public or private entrances such that emergency and hazard vehicles may pass in response to any emergency.
