NUDE SWIMMING BAN CONSIDERED

April 10, 1990

Douglas County commissioners on Wednesday will consider adopting a resolution to cover nude swimming at Clinton Lake.

The resolution would prohibit nudity at the lake, which is southwest of town. Violators would be fined up to $25.

Local officials had assumed current laws prohibited nudity at the lake until some people told the sheriff last fall they planned to do some nude swimming, County Administrator Chris McKenzie told commissioners earlier this month.

The sheriff told the would-be skinny dippers they couldn't swim nude at Clinton Lake but later learned no laws forbid it, McKenzie said.

The county does have regulations prohibiting nude swimming or sunbathing at Lone Star Lake, which is also southwest of the city.

The public hearing is scheduled for 7:15 p.m. at the Douglas County Courthouse, 11th and Massachusetts. The commission meeting starts at 7 p.m.

In other business, commissioners are scheduled to:

Consider an agreement with the Atchison Topeka & Santa Fe Railway to spray noxious weeds along the railroad right of way this year.

Consider three contracts for right of way for the Douglas County Road 1023 grading project. The project takes in 1023 from U.S. Highway 40 north three miles.

Consider approval to advertise for bids for a mid-sized sedan and county band radio for building codes inspection.
