Sexually oriented businesses could face ordinance changes in Waco
UPDATED: Monday, April 14, 2014 - 10:32pm
Waco, Texas — Tuesday night, Waco City Council will have a first reading on proposed changes to the city's ordinance regulating sexually oriented businesses.
After hearing from local business owners, Waco city leaders revised their original proposed changes to the city's ordinance.
In local strip clubs, the city is no longer proposing that nude and semi-nude employees be at least six feet away from customers. The city is also changing their proposed requirement to license employees. Instead, the business owners must maintain a file on hand with information on employees, which includes a copy of the employee's ID, photograph of the employee's face, and a copy of a criminal history check.
A work session was held on April 1, during a city council meeting to discuss the proposed revisions.
The first reading of the proposed changes will be April 15. The second reading will be May 6. Following the second reading, businesses will have 90 days to comply.
