Snuggles business hopes to open soon, city concerned about prostitution

October 20, 2013 (MADISON, Wis.)

The Snuggle House in Madison was supposed to launch last Tuesday. But Jennifer Zilavy, an assistant city attorney, tells the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel the business still needs a certificate of occupancy and to show that it has hiring, training, security and other written protocols.

She says the city's concern is whether the business could lead to prostitution.

Owner Matthew Hurtado says there are eight security cameras and staff has received training about how to react to possible scenarios.

Zilavy said she hadn't seen any written materials, and couldn't say when it would be ready for business.

Hurtado said Sunday he plans to meet with the city Tuesday and turn over the paperwork. He hopes to open Wednesday.
