UPDATE: Council pumps brakes on Woodbury massage ordinance


After years of dealing with prostitution at some local massage parlors, Woodbury police are proposing an ordinance aimed at protecting the city from attracting more illegal activity.

The new ordinance, which Woodbury City Council decided to table at Wednesday night's meeting, would require existing and new massage therapy businesses to apply for licensing that could cost more than $1,000 in fees.
