Chattanooga's new Special Gathering Permit went into effect over the weekend, and police shut down one event hall and gave the building owner a notice of violation, Mayor Andy Berke's office said.

No entity applied for a Special Gathering Permit for Friday and Saturday, a news release from Berke's office stated.

Late Saturday night, "Da Building," was found to be operating after midnight without a permit. Police shut it down, and the owner was given a notice of the violation.
