BANNED: Modified strip club ordinance passes

April 12, 2013

COLUMBIA CITY — In Tuesday’s meeting, Columbia City’s Common Council passed a more specific version of its ordinance banning strip clubs.

Language was included in the revised ordinance, explicitly stating what constituted a nude or semi-nude act.

It also included the definition of a commercial establishment.

There was a section of the ordinance that included provisions for areas where nudity is normally allowed — such as locker rooms, hotels and doctor’s offices. Those establishments would not constitute an ordinance violation under normal conditions.
