Lafayette Vows Compliance with Massage Regs

In wake of prostitution arrests several months ago, city is requiring massage practitioners to obtain state certification.

With a deadline looming, Lafayette city officials note some progress in getting employees of massage parlors to obtain state certification.

On June 21, Lafayette city staff presented new regulations to massage establishment owners and property owners requiring:

"Many of them have obtained the certification and registered with the police department," stated a Lafayette police press release. "Others have not … The Lafayette Police Department will enforce the ordinance and ensure compliance."

The city required these businesses to comply with the new regulations by Monday, Oct. 29.

City staff scheduled another meeting to discuss the regulations for Friday in Room 240, 3675 Mt. Diablo Blvd., Lafayette.

Neighborhood concerns about prostitution at massage parlors boiled over this year into civic meetings and police enforcement. In August, a Concord woman was arrested at Lelouch Massage on Brown Avenue on suspicion of prostitution; three arrests on prostitution and pimping charges were made in June at two parlors on Mount Diablo Boulevard.

If they're going to be closed down on Monday, I predict a lot of massaging going on this final weekend. Stay away from that end of town this weekend. Who knows what you'll see. Sympathies to the neighbors who will have to deal with this last blow out weekend.

If you're looking for more than a massage, just go to San Francisco like everyone else.

A Moraga politician was paid off to stop or slow regulation of the Massage/Bordello industry. Money talks and BS walks, especially if the cash is delivered under the table.
