 MINUTES OF THE MEETING OF THE
MAYOR AND THE COMMITTEE-OF-THE-WHOLE
OF THE CITY OF EAST MOLINE, ILLINOIS

ON 12/06/99


ROLL CALL

Mayor Ward called the meeting to order and directed the City Clerk Bobbi-Sue Huntoon to call the roll. The following Alder People were present: Helen Heiland, John Thodos, Joe Moreno, Carol Doose, David Kelley, Gary Kelley and Crotis Teague.

MASSAGE ORDINANCE REVIEW REQUEST (THELMA MORRIS)

Thelma Morris appeared before the Committee-of-the-Whole to request a change in the ordinance for licensing of massage therapists. At the present time Illinois is still working on determining the criteria for establishing state licensing requirements for Illinois. The American Massage Therapy Association requires graduation from an approved training school for membership. The State of Iowa as well as 25 other states requires 600 hours of training and ongoing training to get and maintain a licence. The National Certification for Therapists has a stringent test requirement and require 750 hours of training plus ongoing training. All of these entities require at least 100 hours training in anatomy. Cosmetologists are licensed as estheticians (skin care specialists). Estheticians need 750 hours of training and must pass a state written exam to obtain the necessary license "just" to give facials. In order to cut or color hair, cosmetologists must complete 1,500 hours of training and a written test as well. Currently a person providing a massage which affects your total health have less education than the person who cuts your hair. Comments were also given by Charlie Strong and Tim Shares. Alderman Moreno read a letter from Dixie Martins. There was discussion.

A motion was made by Moreno, seconded by Doose to have the City Attorney and staff review the proposal and draft a ordinance including the notification of changes of City Certification to the currently registered therapists in East Moline, and notices of the change to the Massage Therapy training facilities in the area. Upon roll call the following Alder People voted in favor: Heiland, Thodos, Moreno, Doose, D. Kelley, G. Kelley and Teague. Motion carried. 8:27 P.M.
