PENDLETON, Ore. (AP) - The Umatilla city council has placed a moratorium on new adult businesses for the next 120 days.

The East Oregonian newspaper reports (https://is.gd/ta6Pa5) that councilors did not discuss the temporary ban before voting on it Tuesday night.

The action was prompted by the addition of a third strip club on Sixth Street.

City Manager Bob Ward said the intent is to give the city planning commission time to craft new land use rules governing businesses that restrict minors from the premises.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Oregon submitted a letter to the city, calling the moratorium a violation of Oregon’s constitution.
