New Rules for Sexually Oriented Businesses

Lubbock County has new rules for sexually oriented businesses. 

In late June of last year, a federal judge ruled the county's regulation of sexually oriented businesses lacked due process. Three businesses sued the county: The Boom Boom Cabaret, Fantasy Theater, and Arcadia Enterprises.

There are two major changes.  The Sheriff's Office has 14 days instead of 30 days to consider a renewal. This gives a business time to submit and then resubmit a rejected renewal before the permit expires.

Also, businesses must show they own the property or that they have a lease for the entire period of the sexually oriented business permit.
