    “… any one of the proposed codes might be appropriate depending upon one’s position…”

    I worked for the City of Elko Planning Department for a few years. It was an eye-opening experience when we revised our city brothel ordinance.

    Did you know in some brothel counties, the “girls” can only leave the brothels during their monthly periods? And during that time frame, they have to leave town and may not “poach” customers from their brothels? Yep. It is what it is.
