MADISON, Wis. — The owner of the Snuggle House in Madison says he has a plan to address concerns of city officials and hopes to open next week.

Owner Matthew Hurtado says the business passed the building inspection Tuesday morning and a fire inspection is set for Friday.

Assistant city attorney Jennifer Zilavy says the business has not presented a business plan. Zilvay says the city's primary concern is about the potential for prostitution.

But Hurtado says the touch therapy it offers has clear boundaries in place to stay within the law. He says they also plan to have someone monitoring security cameras in the rooms.

He says he and his attorney hope to meet soon with city officials and if that goes well he plans to open next week.
