Texas A&M Game Ticket Ordinance

  1. 1. Ordinance Amendment Chapter 8, “Businesses” Article V, “Home Solicitation and Itinerant Vendors” and ILA with Texas A&M Scott McCollum, Chief of Police September 26, 2019
  2. 2. Overview • TAMU contacted the City to help address the issue of individuals selling counterfeit tickets • The City offered to draft an ordinance requiring a TAMU permit for persons to sell their tickets if TAMU developed a policy and a permitting system for ticket sellers to help control the issue
  3. 3. Purpose • TAMU ticket reselling may result in unsuspecting buyers purchasing counterfeit tickets • The ordinance requires a TAMU permit to sell Texas A&M tickets in the City • TAMU adopted a policy similar to the ordinance for campus enforcement
  4. 4. How it works • The TAMU permit and the City’s ordinance do not apply to persons occasionally reselling tickets purchased for personal use • Persons reselling TAMU tickets are required to obtain a $100 TAMU permit allowing ticket reselling • Sellers must be in possession of the permit at the time of selling tickets
  5. 5. Offense and Penalty • “It is unlawful for any person to engage in ticket reselling, regardless if the ticket is valid or counterfeit, who is not a permitted ticket reseller and not in possession of a valid university permit” • “A person convicted of a violation of this code shall be punished by a fine of not less than $25.00 and not more than $500”
  6. 6. Interlocal Agreement • University Police Department will help enforce the ordinance and the City needs to give TAMU authority to enforce the ordinance through the ILA • The ILA authorizes “University Police to aid, assist and cooperate in law enforcement duties, police protection, enforcement and detention services, as it relates to enforcing College Station’s ordinance prohibiting unauthorized University ticket reselling”
