GA town wastes $1 million taxpayers' money to buy strip club...
Town spends $1 million to buy, shut strip club Lavonia officials bought Cafe Risque as a way to close it down
updated 7:01 p.m. ET, Thurs., July. 31, 2008 LAVONIA, Ga. - A small town in northeast Georgia has bought a strip club, but it's not planning to get into the adult entertainment business.
The town of Lavonia could have used nearly $1 million to pay off the bond fund for a water treatment plant upgrade. Instead, officials bought Cafe Risque, which they have long tried to shut down.
Lavonia's mayor got a standing ovation when he announced the deal at a meeting earlier this week. Crews took down the signs advertising it and burned them in a large bonfire at the strip club site, near a major highway.
