The new city of Johns Creek is on track to start the same way that Sandy Springs did — with a fight over adult entertainment that will likely put the city in court.
Mike Bodker, who is unopposed for mayor, declared at a Town Hall meeting last week that as soon as the City Council is official in November, it will adopt adult entertainment ordinances to regulate places like the Love Shack, an adult video chain trying to open in the heart of this north Fulton city.
Voters approved creation of the city in July. After elections in November, the city opens for business Dec. 1.
“I’m going to introduce ordinances, and they will be [the] strongest ordinances allowed,” Bodker said to a cheering crowd of 1,000 or more upset residents. “On Dec. 1, if they open we’re prepared; if they don’t, we’re prepared.”
