For events held on public property, you are required to obtain liability insurance that names you and the City of Mauldin as co-insured. This policy can be obtained through a private broker, or through the City of Mauldin’s TULIP website, as detailed below.
The City of Mauldin offers optional liability insurance for those utilizing public property for a special event. The Tenant User Liability Insurance Program (TULIP) is a low-cost insurance policy that protects both the “tenant user” and the City of Mauldin. You may purchase this one-time, event-specific insurance online by following the directions below.
Insurance must be obtained before a special events application is approved. You can submit your application before you purchase insurance, but it will not be approved until proof of insurance is received.
