Requirements After Issuance

No issued dance hall permit is transferable. The premises used for operating the public dance hall will not be rented or leased to any third party unless they are also permitted as required.

The permit shall be available for inspection at the place of the event at all times during the operation of the public dance hall.

An accurate count of those admitted to the public dance hall will be maintained, as well as an accurate daily record of the admissions collected.

The event must have a police officer present for every one hundred (100) patrons in attendance (or forecast to be in attendance) at the dance hall. The permit holder is responsible for securing and paying the required police officers for the event. A minimum of two police officers shall be required for any event.
