Council Initially Approves Regs for Strip Clubs

The Westbrook City Council gave preliminary approval Monday night to an
ordinance that would allow strip clubs to operate in the city's industrial
zones. Restrictions would include a requirement that dancers be partially
covered up. Mayor Colleen Hilton said the ordinance received unanimous approval
on a first reading. It must go through a public hearing and a second
reading--scheduled for Nov. 1--before it can be enacted. A representative for
Dreamers Cabaret, the club on Warren Avenue that led councilors to consider the
ordinance, said it is poorly crafted and unconstitutional.
