FARGO, N.D. (AP) - The Cass County sheriff is promoting an ordinance that would require his office to be notified about public events.

Sheriff Paul Laney says the law would not allow an event to be held unless officers are present and fees are paid. He says that would include concerts, dances, races and rodeo.

Laney tells KFGO radio (http://bit.ly/1wvlnJX) that law enforcement does not want to micromanage events, but it’s an issue of public safety. He says it would not include private gatherings.

Violation of the law would be a Class B misdemeanor.

The Cass County commission must approve the ordinance.
