“Nampa police closed a bikini bar June 1 after it failed to renew its license, and the City Council denied the renewal on Monday after police cited problems during eight months of operation. (“New bikini bar concerns Nampans,” Oct. 6) Undercover officers witnessed dancers at the Torch lounge touching customers in a sexual way, which is a violation of state liquor license laws, Assistant Chief Tim Vincent said. The club, at 453 Caldwell Blvd. across from the Lighthouse Rescue Mission, had 59 calls for service since October, which required multiple police cars for each call and emergency medical crews in 11 cases.”
