Now, town council is taking another look at their public nudity ordinance.

Mayor Joe Benson said an unidentified person was offended when they saw someone they thought was inappropriately dressed. That person wrote a letter to council saying the indecent exposure ordinance was in violation.

Benson said, per the law, buttocks are not considered nudity.

“Yeah. Men or women wearing thongs…and as I said, you know according to the state, buttocks are not considered nudity…so where are we on that, we’ll work it all out tonight,” Benson said.

Benson said town council will meet tonight to make sure they are in compliance with the state law.
