Meridian Bans Parties for State Patty’s Weekend

In a flyer given to all residents, Meridian on College Avenue has stated that it will not allow residents to throw parties from Friday February 22nd through Sunday February 24th. After last years damage to Meridian during State Patty’s weekend, this motion comes as no surprise.

The flyer notes that “uniformed police officers will be patrolling the Meridian [all weekend] in an effort to uphold the Zero Tolerance policy for ‘State Patty’s’ weekend.” Any apartment found hosting a party this weekend will be subjected to a $200 fine.

The flyer also says that apartments may not have more than double their occupancy at any given time during the weekend, and any disrespect this weekend from residents OR their guests will result in a report being filed with a possibility for eviction. In addition, there is also a summary of the penalties for crimes such as “Public drunkenness,” “Urinating in public,” and “Providing alcohol to minors” among others.

With Meridian canceling parties this early in the week, it’s hard not to imagine that others won’t follow suit. It really is only a matter of time before State Patty’s Day is a thing of the past.
