Village may scrap Lambeau ticket resale ordinance


ASHWAUBENON, Wis. (AP) -- The village of Ashwaubenon (ash-WAH'-beh-non) will consider scrapping an ordinance restricting the resale of Green Bay Packers tickets outside Lambeau (LAM'-boh) Field.

Public Safety Chief Eric Dunning says the ordinance, adopted in 1997, has become too difficult to enforce. It requires ticket resellers to pay $800 to register with the village, submit to a background check, wear identification and sell in a designated area.

Dunning says the village doesn't have enough police power to effectively enforce the ordinance. He also tells the Green Bay Press-Gazette ( that technology has changed ticket sales since the ordinance was initially adopted. Reputable ticket vendors are available online.

A village board committee is recommending the board scrap the ordinance.
