2. All individuals entering the premises shall be scanned by a metal detector.
3. All occupants of the premises shall be ID Scanned (including patrons, promoters, and performers, etc.). ID scanning data shall be maintained on a data storage system for no less than 15 days and shall be made available to local law enforcement upon request.

Again, Kane says these are merely proposals and unlikely to be approved tomorrow. Check out the full proposal here. Tomorrow's meeting takes place at 6 p.m. in Room 400 at City Hall. There will be a chance for public comment during the meeting, and if you can't make that, you can always send your comments in advance.
