Mounds View Officials Change Happy Endings
Mounds View officials decided to consider changing the city's licensing program after alleged sexual activity closed a parlor last month.
According to the St. Paul Pioneer Press, Xiu Ju Li, owner of Jian Kang Massage, had her license revoked and was arrested on "suspicion of promoting prostitution," Mike Sommer, Mounds View Police Chief, said.
The investigation in to the massage parlor's late hours and potential prostitution ring encourage Mounds View's city code on massage operations to be magnified.
The Pioneer Press reports that "the owner of a massage parlor would have to continually be of 'good moral character' after the license has been issued," and the city would also "update the code to conform to Minnesota law.
By changing and strengthening the code, some of the "ambiguity" would be eliminated, said City Council member Roger Stigney. The City Council is planning to adopt these changes on Feb. 23.
