ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) — Officials in Arlington will require the organizers of pub crawls to get a permit and pay for any county services the event uses.

The Arlington County Board voted unanimously Saturday to require the permits. Officials say they’ve seen a significant increase in pub crawls and the participants in them since the county adopted its special events policy in 2012.

The county manager will develop the details for managing the pub crawls. The new policy will allow the county to assess fees and charge pub crawl event organizers for police, fire and emergency services.
