ASHWAUBENON, WI (WTAQ) - A proposal to scrap Ashwaubenon’s ordinance that requires game day ticket scalpers to be licensed and in a designated area, was pushed back down to committee to take a second look. Concerns were raised from ticket selling businesses like Event USA and Schmitty’s Tickets about protecting consumers from counterfeit ticket sellers and scammers. They argued fans come to the designated area in front of the Brown County Veterans Memorial to buy legitimate tickets from resellers. Ashwaubenon Public Safety Chief Eric Dunning is in favor of repealing the ordinance because it has become too difficult to enforce, saying they spend too much time reglating the sellers in the area. It was established in 1997, and requires resellers to pay a $800 fee, register with the city, get a background check and wear identification lanyards. Event USA suggested that the fee could be knocked down to $100 as a way to encourage more resellers to come forward. Dunning says under the ordinance the department would be required to ticket someone trying to resell tickets, and gives an example of a fan just trying to get rid of an extra ticket on game day. Just last year during a Packers and Bears game, more than two dozen counterfeit tickets were purchased from non-registered ticket scalpers. Green Bay Police along with Public Safety stressed a buyer beware attitude and informed the public on ways to look for authentication on NFL tickets. However, they also promoted the licensed ticket seller area as a safe way to buy tickets on game day. Chief Dunning also says if Ashwaubenon repeals their ordinance, a similar proposal would likely move forward for the city of Green Bay.
