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.
