Salem City Council to Hear New 'Fortunetelling' License Ordinance

April 24th, 2012 § 0 comments

And there’s more Tarot and the law news this week … Salem, Massachusetts might begin issuing new licenses for psychic businesses starting May 1st.

Since July of last year, there’s been a moratorium on the issuance of licenses to new psychic businesses in Salem.

Council members have been reviewing the present regulations and have drawn up a new ordinance to be heard at City Council this coming Thursday.

According to The Salem News, under the new rules, a ‘fortuneteller’ license would only be issued to a business that devotes at least 75 percent of its goods and services to fortunetelling and related products.

The old rules required only 51 percent of a business to be designated as such.

These changes are expected to reduce the number of licenses issued for psychic businesses in the city.
