Hutchinson Works To Ban Public Nudity

The Hutchinson City Council is scheduled to consider an ordinance that would ban public nudity in the city.

The Hutchinson News reports the ordinance before the council tomorrow includes very specific definitions of what constitutes public nudity.

City Attorney Paul Brown says laws against disturbing the peace and lewd and lascivious behavior don't address the issue.

Brown acknowledges the city doesn't have a serious public nudity problem, but he says police occasionally get calls about someone nude in public.
