Augusta: BOS public hearing tonight for adult ordinances

Tonight the Augusta County Board of Supervisors will hold a public hearing at 7 pm at the Government Center in Verona on the proposed adult business ordinances that were recently passed by the Planning Commission. Members of the Citizens Task Force Against Pornography, including Kurt Michael and Andrea Oakes, will attend to speak on behalf of the ordinances.

Proposed ordinances would prevent adult businesses from locating within 500' of schools, churches, neighborhoods, playgrounds, and other family-oriented locations. Similar ordinances were passed in November by the Staunton City Council.
