MADISON, Wis. (AP) — There won’t be much snuggling at the Snuggle House in Madison until the new business obtains the necessary permits to open.
City officials say the business has yet to pass the building and fire inspections it needs for an occupancy permit. Assistant city attorney Jennifer Zilavy says the business has not presented a business plan.
Zilvay tells WKOW-TV the city’s primary concern is about the potential for prostitution.
But, the owner of the Snuggle House says the touch therapy it offers has clear boundaries in place to stay within the law.
The owner’s attorney, Tim Casper, says the business won’t open until the city is OK with the operation.
