FARGO — New regulations for massage businesses took one more step closer to becoming reality Friday, Oct. 15.

At a Cass County Public Health meeting, officials announced that the initial drafting of regulations is now complete.

The massage industry has until Friday, Oct. 22 to submit comments on the proposed ordinance.

The ordinance would allow for random inspection of massage businesses in a similar manner to the inspection of restaurants.

The Fargo City Commission is set to discuss the ordinance on Nov. 1.
