Burlington Reviews Public Property Policy Post-Rave

10/22/12 6:06AM

Burlington Mayor Miro Weinberger is calling for immediate changes to the way the city reviews requests to use city-owned property.

This comes after about two dozen young people were hospitalized or taken into custody for intoxication at a rave-style event at the city's Memorial Auditorium.

The Barstool Blackout Tour attracted about 2,000 party-goers on Friday. The city's parks and recreation department approved the permit for the event.

Mayor Weinberger tells the Burlington Free Press it's unacceptable that an event that generated that level of dangerous intoxication happened on city-owned property.
