The Prince George’s County Council unanimously passed a bill Tuesday to tighten restrictions on teen and adult dance halls throughout the county.
The measure, which was introduced by Councilwoman Karen Toles (D-Dist. 7) of Suitland, increases dance hall license fees from $200 to $1,000, requires dance halls to submit evacuation and safety plans prior to receiving a permit and explicitly prohibits establishments from allowing dancing between 2 and 11 a.m.
The bill also allows police to conduct background checks on individuals wishing to obtain or renew dance hall licenses and gives police and firefighters authority to suspend or revoke the licenses of establishments that commit safety or noise violations.
Prince George’s County Police Chief Mark Magaw welcomed the bill.
