In an effort to curb illegal activities in some commercial enterprises, the Stanton City Council took action Tuesday night to continue a ban on certain new businesses.

The council voted 5-0 to extend an existing moratorium on certain “personal service and medical office businesses” for an additional 10 months and 15 days.

The original 45-day moratorium was approved by the council on June 14, 2022.

According to a staff report, some massage establishments – along with other enterprises in which the customer might end up partially or fully undressed – have been connected to illegal sexual activities and human trafficking.

The moratorium continues a temporary stop to new medical office or personal service businesses if they include a barber shop, beauty salon, nail salon, tanning salon, non-medical skin or facial skin care, eyelash extensions or eyebrow waxing, threading or tattooing, acupuncture or acupressure.
