Pierce County: Council rules committee moves forward with proposal seeking new strip club regulations
A proposal to beef up rules for strip clubs in unincorporated Pierce County is still dancing.
The Pierce County Council’s Rules and Operations Committee on Monday unanimously advanced to the full council a measure that, among other things, calls to increase licensing fees and ramp up lighting requirements for adult entertainment nightspots.
But the committee opted not to act on a recommended amendment that would loosen language in the measure that aims to hold strip club managers liable for dancers who break the rules.
Councilman Rick Talbert suggested the amendment is best left for all council members to consider.
