Regulations for sexually oriented businesses
(2008-02-12)
(WOUB) - Athens City Council is talking about more regulations for sexually oriented businesses.

This time they're considering things like hours of operation and lighting.

Councilmember Debbie Phillips says they want to do what they can to reduce or eliminate crime and similar problems in the area of such an establishment.

A new ordinance is supposed to be introduced next Monday.

Council previously voted to impose zoning restrictions on businesses such as the strip club that's been proposed on Stimson Avenue.

That's what kicked off the whole discussion.
