COLUMBIA CITY â€” In Tuesdayâ€™s meeting, Columbia Cityâ€™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 â€” such as locker rooms, hotels and doctorâ€™s offices. Those establishments would not constitute an ordinance violation under normal conditions.
Provisions were also included for genuine protest as protected by the constitution.
