[ARCHIVED] Dirty Dawg Saloon in Aggieville Ordered to Close after multiple violations of Local Health Order 18

(RILEY COUNTY, KS – November 7, 2020)  Dirty Dawg Saloon in Aggieville must close per court order after multiple violations of the most recent local health order.

Yesterday, a Riley County District Court Judge granted the county’s application for a restraining order against Dirty Dawg Saloon. Starting at 10:00 a.m. today, Saturday, November 7th, the restraining order goes into effect and the bar must close until the defendants take action to comply with Local Health Order No. 18.

Over several weeks, violations of the local health order were documented through reports and body camera footage from Riley County Police Officers. The violations included overcrowding, open dance floors, and staying open past midnight.

According to the Judge’s orders, the dance floor must be closed and customers must be prohibited from drinking unless seated at tables. The defendants must also take action to comply with City of Manhattan Municipal Code Sec. 22-71(b) and require customers and employees to wear face masks.

“We will continue to work with businesses to communicate the need for safety protocols,” Riley County Health Officer Julie Gibbs said. “Ultimately, we will do what is necessary to protect the health of our community.”

Similar action will be taken against other establishments in violation of local health orders.
