METROPOLIS, IL (KFVS) - Metropolis Mayor Billy McDaniel says that Judge Phil Gilbert did rule in favor of the City of Metropolis on Friday afternoon. He said the city's ordinance created on February 24 is constitutional and can be enforced.
The ordinance will basically prohibit anyone under the age of 21 from working at The Pony strip club, male or female.
Also, there can no longer be any touching of patrons by workers or dancers. And, no nudity at all by any workers.
McDaniel says it can be enforced as of 12:01 a.m. Monday.
McDaniel says that they are planning a meeting with city attorneys in the morning to go over how they want to enforce the ordinance.
And he says they do expect the owner of The Pony to file an appeal to the judge's ruling.
