County: Nudity problem resolved, no ordinance needed
July 30, 2014
Wahkiakum County commissioners decided Tuesday they wouldn't proceed with drafting an ordinance to regulate public nudity.
Last week, a Westend couple requested the ordinance, saying a nudist had moved into the area and was offending people traveling along the county road by appearing nude outside his home.
The problem is no longer a problem, Westend Commissioner Blair Brady told his colleagues Tuesday.
People had explained the situation to the man, and the man had volunteered that he would wear shorts while working outside his house.
"That's as far as I'd like it to go," Brady commented.
Commissioners Dan Cothren and Mike Backman said they were happy to resolve the issue without having to try to write an ordinance that would handle the situation.
