"Sex clubs not welcome in Peoria County"

The Peoria County Board wants to end the potential for swingers clubs sprouting up under its jurisdiction.

When the city of Peoria banned sex clubs within city limits earlier this year, the county wanted to make sure businesses wouldn't move to unincorporated regions. The proposed amendment clarifies some points that were not previously outlined.

"We just wanted to make sure there wasn't some loophole," said Stephen Morris, chairman of the land use and transportation committee.

The county ordinance does not currently include language banning live sex acts in licensed businesses. Citing public health concerns as the main cause of action, the committee introduced an amendment to the Peoria County code.

"(The amendment) will reenforce that the county of Peoria and the city of Peoria are like-minded in the respect to businesses who provide pay-to-play entertainment to adults," board member Andrew Rand said.

The committee passed the amendment with unanimous vote.

"I don't think anybody in good taste and good conscience would permit these businesses to exist," Rand said.

Only one adult entertainment business is currently licensed by the county - Pulse, a strip club on Farmington Road.

The County Board will vote on the change at the meeting on Oct. 13.
