According to flyers circulating online, Young Dolph is set to make an appearance at a local nightclub at an event that is not sanctioned by th city, or associated with CIAA.

“I’m hoping someone’s had a chat with this guy and there’s an expectation the city is watching,” said mayor pro-tem Juliet Eiselt, who is also chair of the city’s community safety committee. “The issues in the past have been around people coming in for these unsanctioned parties.”
