Simi Valley Mayor says porn industry NOT WANTED THERE!

from www.vcstar.com – Simi Valley mayor to the adult film industry: you’re not wanted here.

Bob Huber [pictured] is taking a proactive move to discourage adult filmmakers who might be thinking of relocating to the city by pushing an ordinance that likely will mirror the hotly-debated ordinance approved [last] Tuesday by the Los Angeles City Council. It calls for denying permits to production companies that don’t require male actors to wear condoms.

The proposed law still needs Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa to approve it and then a committee must be formed to figure out how to enforce it.

“We’re not going to accept the pornographic purveyors from Los Angeles County,” said Huber, who as mayor already has cracked down on illicit massage parlors.

“This is a family-oriented town, and we’re going to rise up and keep them out of our city, whatever it (lawfully) takes.”

Huber said potential revenue from production companies was “not even a consideration.”

Huber’s response came on the heels of news stories in which adult film companies said they would probably take their cameras and actors to nearby counties if the city of Los Angeles’ condom requirement goes countywide. The closest city outside the countyhappens to be Simi Valley, neighbor to the adult-film “capitals” of Chatsworth and San Fernando Valley, according to Huber.

Should filmmakers even consider relocating to Simi Valley, Huber said he expects there to be an ordinance similar to the L.A. City Council’s one waiting for them, although it has yet to be written and voted on.

To get that going, he has asked the city attorney to prepare one for the next City Council meeting on Jan. 30, Huber said.

“So we will have it done and talk about it,” said Huber. “Whether we can do formal stuff is another thing. I know how this town feels, and we’re going to do it, that’s my prediction.”

Simi Valley’s attorney, Tracy Noonan, said her staff is reviewing the ordinance approved by the L.A. City Council to see whether she will copy it directly or make changes. She also is reviewing a similar law on the books — Simi Valley’s current adult business ordinance — to see how broad it is, but it only covers businesses such as adult book stores and exotic dance businesses.
