TOPEKA – The Topeka City Council is set to consider a ban on nudity in public places after a nude man strolled down city streets last week.
Councilwoman Michelle De La Isla requested the proposal be placed on the Sept. 9 agenda.
The Topeka Police Department and the Shawnee County Sheriff’s Department say the act is legal.
State law only prohibits public nudity “in the context of sexual arousal.”
Never miss a local story.
De La Isla says she received calls from worried constituents. She says no one wants their kids “exposed to naked people.”
