Danger Surrounding Local Club Upsetting Homeowners
MARION COUNTY - The Marion County Sheriff's Office says security for clubs is not a requirement.
Though owners of Rush Ultra Lounge say they do provide at least one security guard when their club is rented out.
It's just one part of a rental agreement that outlines the do's and don'ts for the patrons.
One concenred homeowner, who didn't want to give her last name says she justs wants to feel safer here.
Since Rush Ultra Lounge opened up back in 2009, the Sheriff's office has responded to over 100 incidents ranging from excessive noise, to fights, to the shooting that happened a week ago.
The owners of the club say initially, they closed the place down as an official club, and now only rent it out to private parties.
They say the can't control the types of people that show up. Homeowners say what they can control is better safety alternatives for their patrons and those that live in the area.
One homeowner says she doesn't know what their responsibilities are, but there should be some type of security in there, if they're going to have parties with the younger crowd.
She goes on to say things should be safe, there shouldn't be any guns.
