Chiefland closer to ordinance on sexually oriented businesses

-A A +A
By Lou Elliott Jones, Editor

Chiefland is a step closer to having a set of ordinances on the books that tightly regulate adult sexually oriented businesses.

The City Commission, in its regular meeting on Monday evening, unanimously approved on first reading an Adult Establishment Licensing Ordinance and changes to the city's existing Adult Establishment Nudity Ordinance.

The second reading of the two ordinances will be at the commission's regular meeting at 6 p.m. Nov. 10 at City Hall.

The zoning ordinance which regulates the location of adult entertainment businesses must go through the City Planning Board before coming back to the commission for consideration.

The planning board will meet at 6:30 p.m. on Nov. 13 at city hall to consider the new ordinance.

The adult entertainment licensing ordinance is patterned after one passed by the Levy County Commission, said City Attorney Norm Fugate. He said the only choice the commissioners needed to make was how t o handle appeals of suspension or revocation of licenses. The commission could use an administrative hearing officer or have the license holder appeal in court.
