Intro 248 is a bill introduced by Council Member Holden aimed at clamping down on illegal event spaces. According to the language of the bill, it “would provide that a failure to obtain a valid Place of Assembly Certificate of Operation from the Department of Buildings, in a case where beverages are offered for sale to be consumed on the premises, would be classified as an immediately hazardous violation. A violation for failing to comply with requirements regarding security guards for a Place of Assembly would also be specified as an immediately hazardous violation. Such requirements regarding security guards would also be expanded to apply to a lessee of a Place of Assembly.”
