Spokane Valley bikini baristas ordinance passes

SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. (AP) The Spokane Valley City Council has approved an ordinance that identifies what body parts cannot be exposed in public.

KREM reports the ordinance is aimed at getting nearly coffee stand servers to cover up.

The ordinance unanimously passed Tuesday prohibits a person from knowingly exposing a body part in public without a full or opaque covering. Body paint, body dye or stick-on tattoos do not count as covering.

The controversy began earlier this year when a coffee stand opened blocks from the Spokane Valley City Hall with nearly nude baristas. The stand advertised Topless Tuesdays and Thursdays.
