Bath Puts Brakes on Adult Entertainment Clubs

The Bath City Council this week passed a 180-day moratorium on establishing strip clubs.

BATH, Maine (AP) _ The Bath City Council has put the brakes on the development of adult entertainment clubs in the city, at least temporarily.

The council this week passed a 180-day moratorium on establishing strip clubs.

No application has been formally submitted to open an adult entertainment club in the city, officials said, but a Bangor man has expressed an interest in opening a strip club at the Riverside Pub.

City Solicitor Roger Therriault tells The Times Record  there are many related issues and questions to be answered, and that state statute permits the city to call a "timeout.''

Councilor David Sinclair says while the city has the authority to regulate where such a business can operate, it cannot completely ban it.
