Adult business ordinance should get final approval

-A A +A
By Lou Elliott Jones, Editor

The City Commission has approved on first reading what is expected to be the final versions of two ordinances regulating adult entertainment businesses and expects to give final approval to them in late February.

The commission voted 4-0 to approve the licensing and location of adult establishments. Commissioner Teresa Barron, a strong supporter of the measures was absent from the meeting due to illness. Also absent were the two major proponents of the measures, Sylvia McCullar and Marie Strong. McCullar is out of town and Strong was unable to attend the commission’s regular meeting on Monday evening.

Final approval of the measures is expected at the commission’s Feb. 23 meeting because the city Planning Board needs to give its approval to the ordinance on location of the adult establishments.

The commission has been wrangling with a trio of ordinances regulating adult entertainment within city limits, although there is no such business and the commission has made no indication that such businesses are trying to locate within the city. However, the city’s ecumenical leaders have supported the steps.
