CHAPTER V. BUSINESS REGULATIONSCHAPTER V. BUSINESS REGULATIONS\ARTICLE 6. ADULT ENTERTAINMENT

Based on testimony, case law and other information before it, the City Council has made the following legislative findings of fact:

(a)   That certain conduct occurring on premises offering adult entertainment is detrimental to the public health, safety and general welfare of citizens of the city and, therefore, such conduct must be regulated in this chapter;

(b)   That businesses that provide adult entertainment are associated with and promote prostitution, illegal drug use and other criminal activity which constitutes an immediate threat to the public peace, health, morals and safety;

(c)   That regulation of adult entertainment businesses is necessary because in the absence of such regulation, significant criminal activity to include prostitution, illegal drug use and disruptive behavior has historically and regularly occurred;

(d)   That it is necessary to regulate and license entertainers, servers and employees in the adult entertainment industry to prevent the exploitation of minors;

(e)   That it is necessary to have a licensed manager on the premises of establishments offering adult entertainment to insure that at all times a person responsible for the overall operation of the business, including the actions of the customers, entertainers and other employees is present; and

(f)    That the license fees imposed by the regulation herein are reasonable fees imposed as necessary regulatory measures designed to help defray expenses incurred by the City in regulating adult entertainment business.
