Greenfield — After being told that changes will keep this year's festival safe, the Common Council on Tuesday unanimously approved giving an alcoholic beverages license to Dan Jansen Family Fest.
The action clears the way for the four-day, Memorial Day weekend festival to be held for the 16th time.
Last year, the event at Konkel Park was marred by fights, 40 arrests and a battered police officer.
The changes include the elimination of a "teen tent," where police said rap and hip-hop music drew teens and young adults who started fights.
The changes won't keep the festival safe, according to a majority of the 1,300 votes cast in an unscientific JSOnline.com poll.
