More from City Hall: To sing, dance and massage

7:25 p.m.:

Community Development Director Michael Niblock is presenting a recommendation to relax the city’s regulation of live entertainment. A federal court ordered the city to revise its ordinance after the Brookside restaurant Maxim’s was denied a permit and convinced the court to intervene.

Niblock is also recommending a measure to allow state-certified practitioners of massage therapy to massage people without a city license. That recommendation is in response to a state law that allows state-certified massage therapists to practice without city authorization.

Councilwoman Susan Eggman called massage therapy a valuable method of alternative therapy. Councilwoman Leslie Baranco Martin agreed. Councilman Elbert Holman Jr. said, “I don’t think we need to worry that it’s going to get out of hand.” If it does, he said, the Police Department would become aware of it.

The matter is approved without dissent.
