Watch out for increased law enforcement this year

In June, the Pershing County Commission agreed to charge Black Rock City, LLC, $400,000 for this year’s event. That money will pay for an increase in Pershing County law enforcement at the event, from 26 officers last year to 44 this year.

The increase was requested by Sheriff Machado, increasing the price for law enforcement from $154,000 last year to about $400,000 this year.


According to the article, Pershing County has a new festival ordinance:
Attorneys for Burning Man say the county’s festival ordinance directly conflicts with the BLM permit. The ordinance goes into effect in October, meaning it would affect the 2013 event, and would allow Pershing County deputies to regulate behaviors that are considered “obscene, indecent, vulgar or lewd.” It could also mean children are no longer allowed to attend the event.

Will just have to connect every camp with a series of monkeyhut tubes so that the entire city is indoors and the cops aren't invited.

Or: a Giant Dome.
