Do I need a permit to hold a large party at my house?
No, technically, you do not need a permit provided you are not closing off any streets or cul-de-sacs. The noise ordinance applies to parties and restricts excessive noise between 10 p.m. and 7 a.m. However, if any deputy responds to any large party, gathering or event and that deputy determines that there is a threat to the public health, safety or general welfare, the deputy may issue a written notice to the host or hosts and to the owner of the property if he is present that the party is a disturbance and unless they voluntarily stop, the deputy may be required to take action to stop it. If the deputy spends additional time or equipment to stop the party, the property owner and occupant may be charged the cost of service of $1,000 or more for each response. Actual costs of response may be charged in excess of $1,000.
If you are having a large gathering that will cause a parking impact, it is suggested that you call City Hall at least two days prior so we can alert the Sheriff’s Department to avoid potential parking situations causing citations.
Graffiti and street light issues can be reported to Villa Park City Hall at (714) 998-1500. After normal business hours the City uses an answering service so you can reach someone 24 hours a day.
