An event scheduled in Delhi Township by a company that specializes in adult entertainment stirred up a flurry of activity on social media that ended with the event's cancellation.
The Underground Lounge, a reception and banquet hall in Delhi Township, rented out its facility to a company called Candy Land Co., which presents adult-oriented entertainment.
A flier posted online promoting an adult-entertainment event that had been scheduled for July 15 at the Underground Lounge. The company offers adult oriented entertainment, but information that had previously been on Facebook was removed not long after residents began expressing opposition on social media. Despite the cancellation of the event, trustees said the police will continue to investigate it for "potentially illegal activity." However, until the investigation is complete, the trustees will not comment publicly.
The event has since been canceled following an outcry by residents on social media. The statement read, "At no time do we condone this type of activity in Delhi Township, and we will work to keep these types of events from coming here now and in the future."Delhi Township Administrator Jack Cameron said township officials had received several dozen calls and emails from residents with complaints and concerns."The residents have spoken loud and clear that they don’t want this type of event, and we absolutely agree with the community’s sentiment," Cameron said.
The owners of the Underground Lounge filed a police report on July 12 after trash was thrown on the porch of the business and the exterior air conditioning unit was damaged, Howarth said. Both are considered misdemeanor charges and are under investigation.
