In response, the Simi Valley City Council on Monday night introduced an ordinance that will require such businesses to be at least feet apart. Separation ordinances have been implemented by other California cities to deter crime, the memo stated. They include Ventura, which recently adopted a foot separation rule between massage businesses, the memo stated. Massage businesses — legitimate and illicit — mushroomed in Simi Valley, in Ventura County and throughout California under a state law that took away much local control to regulate them.
The law was repealed effective Jan. In August , the Simi Valley City Council enacted new rules and standards for massage establishments. Subsequent inspections — announced and unannounced — resulted in more than charges being filed against 21 of the massage businesses, Hammer said. The charges included und practitioners, failure to keep employee records and prohibited sexual conduct, she said. To date, about 13 of the businesses have been shut down by the city, leaving about 19 still operating, Livingstone said.
Thus, the city Planning Commission recommended the City Council adopt an ordinance repealing that portion of the municipal code regulating massage businesses, replacing it with a new one containing the foot separation requirement. City Attorney Lonnie Eldridge said existing massage businesses will be able to keep operating without being subject to the foot separation requirement until they close or otherwise cease operation. Upon reopening, they will be subject to the requirement, he said. Ahmos Netanel is CEO of the California Massage Therapy Council, which was created by the state Legislature to implement a voluntary certification program for the massage therapy profession.
Still, he said he had some questions about the application of the pending new requirement. Facebook Twitter . Simi council introduces foot separation requirement for massage businesses. Mike Harris Ventura.Hookers in Simi valley
