Eliot voters OK ordinances over strip clubs

ELIOT, Maine — Residents in the southern Maine town of Eliot have given their unanimous approval to three town ordinances regulating adult entertainment.

About 200 people voted Saturday on restrictions that include banning full nudity and alcohol sales and prohibiting a strip club from operating between midnight and 6 a.m. Partial nudity would be allowed.

The vote came in response to a proposal to open a business called 403 Gentlemen’s Club on Route 236.

An attorney hired by the town to craft the ordinances says a municipality cannot completely ban all adult businesses, but can regulate the time, place and manner of adult businesses.
