TOPEKA – The Topeka City Council is expected to make another attempt at banning public nudity.
City Councilman Jeff Coen on Tuesday discussed his proposed ban on nudity in public places, referring to a man who reportedly walks nude along an area trail.
The Topeka Capital-Journal reports Mayor Larry Wolgast said there appeared to be a consensus that the council should consider the nudity ban at a future meeting.
The council voted last year to send its public health and safety committee a proposal that would make public nudity a misdemeanor.
But committee members later voted to send the proposal out of committee with no recommendation regarding whether it should be rejected or approved. The council also considered banning public nudity in 2005, but the proposal died.
