Invitation to massage licensing public hearing

Just a friendly reminder that there will be a public hearing to discuss proposed massage licensing Monday October 17 at 7 PM in the council chambers.  I do not expect that we will be passing any changes, rather just taking input.  I have a few issues with the ordinance as it is written now.  Here is what I see as needed components.

  1. Licensing of businesses and individuals – this is the ONLY way we can shut down a place like China Massage and prevent future sex trafficking.
  2. Standards for practice – I defer to people that know the industry better, but we need some standards.  In my discsussion with a local practitioner I was given some good ideas.  I do not support using certifications from for profit entities.
  3. Everything else is on the table.
