Chiefland closer to ordinance on sexually oriented businesses

-A A +A
By Lou Elliott Jones, Editor


Chiefland is one-third of the way toward regulating nudity at adult oriented businesses, but it put off approving a licensing ordinance for those businesses while also waiting for the City Planning Board to approve an ordinance regulating zoning for such businesses.

After months of work, the City Commission approved changes to its nudity ordinance to define a person as "any live human being aged ten (10) years of age or older, " define enforcement actions that can be taken, and a maximum daily fine of $300.

The action came during the commission's regular Monday meeting. This was the second and final reading of the ordinance, which became effective immediately.

Action on a proposed adult entertainment licensing ordinance was put off after a last-minute fax arrived during the commission meeting from David M. Corry of Liberty Counsel in Lynchburg, Va., suggesting changes in the proposed licensing and zoning ordinances.

The licensing ordinance was passed on first reading two weeks ago and was set for final adoption on Monday before being tabled until the Nov. 24 meeting.
