WHEREAS, Metro Council created a license requirement for “pop-up” parties in Jefferson County to prevent unsafe public parties in our community many of which expose attendees to alcohol, illegal drugs, and predatory-type sexual crimes;

WHEREAS, Metro Council recently learned that some organizers of the “pop-up” parties have circumvented the requirement to obtain a license by limiting admission to persons over 18 years of age;

WHEREAS, Metro Council amends the definition of “public entertainment gatherings” so that a license will be required for all “pop-up” parties to protect the health and safety of residents of Jefferson County.

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT ORDAINED BY THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL OF THE LOUISVILLE/JEFFERSON COUNTY METRO GOVERNMENT (THE “COUNCIL”) AS FOLLOWS:

 

Section 1:                     LMCO section 115.550, titled Definitions, is hereby modified to read as follows: 

                        MINOR.   Person who is under 18 years of age.

 

PUBLIC ENTERTAINMENT GATHERING.   Any assembly that is open to the public for the purpose of dancing and/or listening to music, which allows the entrance of minors; and (A) is conducted for a direct or indirect profit and (B) requires a monetary payment or contribution from the persons admitted.  Public entertainment does not include a banquet, party, or celebration conducted for invited guests which is not open to the public and for which no fee or membership contribution is required; or any party held by a Kentucky Commonwealth and/or Louisville/Jefferson County Metro Government licensed liquor establishment, or at any location where alcoholic beverages are legally served, sold, dispensed or permitted on the premises in accordance with Kentucky and Louisville Metro alcoholic beverage laws.
