Local News

Erie City Council has unanimously passed an ordinance that requires clubs to be licensed and inspected every year.

Through this: after hours clubs, bottle clubs, and dance clubs are required to pay a $300 initial application fee, which includes one inspection. After that, it will be a $200 renewal fee.

From there, businesses will pay an additional $65 for any additional inspections that are needed.

Council also approved a public hearing to discuss a proposed amendment to the zoning ordinance to restrict the operation of these businesses to commercial zones.

That public hearing is set to take place on August 19th.
