Smithtown officials want to condemn and acquire through eminent domain a topless bar near the town’s well-known bull statue, according to Newsday.

Smithtown deputy supervisor Thomas McCarthy said the town wants to acquire the Oasis Gentlemen’s Club “to enhance the entrance to Smithtown and enhance our access to the waterfront” for boaters, according to the report.

Town officials will debate the issue at a meeting on Oct. 27, after which it can make a formal offer of compensation to the property’s owner.

The Oasis sits on about a fifth of an acre on the Nissequogue River. A lawyer for the owner said that they are working “to resolve issues that my client has with the town.” [Newsday] —Dennis Lynch
