ORDINANCE NO. BL2016-221
An ordinance amending Title 6 of the Metropolitan Code of Laws to eliminate Chapter 6.12 regulating dances and dance halls.

Section 1. That Title 6 of the Metropolitan Code of Laws is hereby amended by deleting Chapter 6.12 in its entirety.
Section 2. That the Metropolitan Clerk is directed to send a copy of this Ordinance to the Nashville Fire Department and to the Metropolitan Beer Permit Board, as well as the individual members of said Board.
