A public hearing on Monongalia County's new exotic entertainment ordinance went unopposed.

The county will move restrictions on new exotic entertainment to 1,500 feet from schools, churches, parks, and residential areas.

The change is the third in the past few years.

After a 2,000 foot restriction was deemed unenforceable, the public spoke out against a 600 foot restriction.

Nobody spoke during the hearing.

"I would like to think that means that the public that spoke during the last public hearing had confidence that we would be responsive to what they were saying and I think we were as responsive to the extent that we could be," said Bill Bartolo, of the Monongalia County Commission.
