BRATTLEBORO, Vt. -- People in parts of a Vermont town known for nudity are being told to keep their clothes on.
In a three-two vote, town officials in Brattleboro passed an emergency anti-nudity rule for main roads and near schools and places of worship.
A gaggle of naked teens who hung around a downtown parking lot had prompted the Select Board several months ago to think that clothing-optional wasn't working. But officials decided then to let winter take care of the problem, and never voted.
Eventually, officials decided they had seen enough when an elderly gentleman strolled through downtown last week wearing nothing but a fanny pack. If he did the same thing now, he could be slapped with a $100 fine.
But nudists can still push their agenda. Next month, Brattleboro will hold a public hearing on whether the ordinance should become permanent.
