Because of the way the county code defined adult businesses, some of those businesses felt the county was allowing all-nude establishments.
The current ordinance does not allow full nudity at an adult business, but written in the code is a definition of an adult cabaret and sexual-encounter center, which also can be referred to strip clubs.
The definitions specifically refer to “semi-nude” employees but do not mention anything about full nudity.
County Attorney Steven DeMarsh said some adult businesses were interpreting this to mean that they were allowed to have fully nude employees.
The county wants to change the definition of adult cabarets and sexual-encounter centers so they refer to both semi-nudity and full nudity.
A public hearing on the proposed change will be scheduled at a later date.

- At some point government has to define a non-religious reason for such laws. Not that religion is not important, but laws based solely upon religion are subject to attack on constitutional grounds.
If religion alone can be the basis of any law, what is to stop sharia?
