GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - The City of Green Bay is buying a downtown strip club and turning the site into a parking lot.
The city council approved the acquisition of The Body Shop at 418 N. Monroe Avenue.
Officials plan to raze the building and rent the site for parking for a nearby business. The city would also get back the adult entertainment license for the business.
