This was revealed by Koh Phangan district chief officer Krirk-krai Songthani after a meeting with business operators on the island yesterday.
The assurance was made as the chief officer went to inspect business operators affected by the party ban 😉
He inspected a business operator at Village Group 2 of Tambon Ban Tai in Koh Phangan where it was permitted to hold moon-type parties by local administrative office.
He said moon-type parties were banned following complaints by local people and communities that they were badly affected by the noisy parties. The provincial administrative office received the complaints and later came out with the ban of all moon-type parties.
He also stated the ban has started to affect business operators ;-), thus prompting authorities to investigate and start talking with business operators 😉
If they meet all criteria laid down under the rules and regulations, they will be allowed to hold the parties on a case by case basis, he said 😉
He also cautioned business operators to make sure of their safety measure and that the party must be FREE OF DRUGS 😉 If drugs are engaged, they will be banned from holding moon-type parties indefinitely, he said 😉
He said three operators have been granted permissions to hold moon-type parties.
Meanwhile the owner of Half Moon Party Mr Pee Patanasdiri welcomed the authority understanding of the business and allowed moon-type parties again 😉 😉 🙂
