MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A Madison business that is offering snuggles for $60 an hour is postponing its opening.

The Snuggle House in Madison was supposed to launch on Tuesday. But Jennifer Zilavy, an assistant city attorney, tells the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel the business still needs a certificate of occupancy and to show that it has hiring, training, security and other written protocols.

She says the city's main concern is whether the business could lead to prostitution.

Owner Matthew Hurtado says there are eight security cameras and staff has received hours of training about how to react to possible scenarios. He hopes to open next Wednesday after addressing the city's concerns.

Zilavy says she hadn't seen any written materials yet, and couldn't say whether it would be ready for business next week.
