KEARNEY, Neb. (AP) - The owner of a central Nebraska strip club says a new Buffalo County ordinance is costing him thousands of dollars a week.

The Kearney Hub reports (https://bit.ly/1oeMZ4t ) that Jonathon Canterbury, the owner of Paradise City in Elm Creek, spoke Tuesday to the Buffalo County Board of Supervisors.

The ordinance approved in February requires adult entertainment venues to be closed between 1 a.m. and 10 a.m.

Canterbury is asking the board to adopt a grandfather clause for existing clubs. He says Paradise City used to be open until 4 a.m., and more than half of his business was generated between 1 a.m. and closing time. He says he previously made $3,000 to $5,000 a week, but is now falling short of $2,000.

The board agreed to schedule a public hearing.
