Angola snubs strip club offer

– The Angola Common Council has rejected a proposed $1.5 million settlement that would have ended a federal lawsuit filed by the owners of a proposed strip club.

The Herald-Republican reported that the offer made on behalf of Showgirl III owners Alva and Sandra Butler was soundly rejected Tuesday.

Mayor Dick Hickman said the city was “not biting on that one,” and the case will work its way through the courts.

The Butlers sued the city in March 2013, alleging that their civil rights had been violated when the city prevented them from opening a strip club in Angola in Steuben County.

The Butlers contend the city unconstitutionally changed its zoning rules to block their club.
